Artist excited to bring culture to the region

IT'S her last hurrah as artistic director of Opera at Jimbour and Katie Noonan is making sure this year's event will be something truly special.

The event, to be held on July 27 at Jimbour Station, will be ticketed for the first time, a move Ms Noonan promises will be for the betterment of the entire program.

"We felt that in order to continue the level of excellence that we have been delivering and to the scale we've been delivering, we needed an extra little support on the side,” she said.

Jimbour Station will host some of the country's best artists, and will include an option for patrons to camp out at the station so nobody misses any of the action.

"What we're doing this year is something I like to call 'all killer, no filler',” Ms Noonan said.

"So all the greatest songs from opera from the last 200 to 300 years.

"There's a reason opera music has stood the test of time... it's an extraordinary machine.”

Tickets start at $18 and can be purchased at www.operaatjimbour.com.
