About this event

Lust, infidelity and wrath... step aboard the Crystal Swan and experience the passions of opera intimately on the Swan River.

The first dazzling show directed by Brendan Hanson and designed by Jake Pitcher is Dagger, a world-premiere cabaret celebrating the 80s. Then journey into the seedy underbelly of Puccini's The Cloak, in which clandestine lovers escape from the dull monotony of the everyday... with deadly consequences.

These two short shows, sung in English, provide a delectable taster for any adventurous audience member. Be thrilled by the glorious voices of some of WAAPA's most promising graduates under the guidance of Musical Director, George Unkovich. With delicious catering available for purchase, this boat trip with city views will be an immersive experience like no other.
