Event Details

Award-winning composer Iain Grandage and librettist Alison Croggon breathe new life into Tim Winton’s gripping portrait about the panic and terror of someone suddenly bereft of love. When the unthinkable happens, Scully, a decent hearted Australian embarks on a race across Europe desperately trying to locate his missing wife, with his six year old daughter Billie in tow.

A bold reimagining of an acclaimed Australian novel, with a score featuring bouzoukis, piano accordions, fiddles and the sublime recorder playing of Genevieve Lacey. Directed by Malthouse Theatre’s Artistic Director Marion Potts, The Riders stars Barry Ryan as Scully, returning to the Victorian Opera stage after his critically acclaimed portrayal of the title role of Nixon in China.

The Riders is presented by Victorian Opera and Malthouse Theatre.

Supported by Victorian Opera New Work Syndicate
