Event Details

Soprano Deborah Cheetham fell in love with opera on 17 February 1979, while attending an Australian Opera Merry Widow production in which Dame Joan Sutherland performed the title role. She was 14 years old at the time. Since then, she has become Australia’s foremost Indigenous soprano, founded Short Black Opera Company, and composed Australia’s first Indigenous opera, Pecan Summer, which premiered in October 2010 and opens at The Arts Centre, Melbourne this September.
