About Il Mago di Oz
Launched from the pages of L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy Gale’s journey down the Yellow Brick Road has captured the imagination of children and adults alike since the novel was first published in 1900. Her encounters with the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and Witches, good and bad, are legendary.
Following inspired retellings on screen as well as spin-off Broadway musicals, the land of Oz is reimagined yet again. Discover composer Pierangelo Valtinoni’s quirky and wondrous new Italian opera, Il Mago di Oz.
This Australian premiere production will introduce Victorian Opera’s Emerging Artists and a specially trained children’s chorus. With an emphasis on childhood and its capacity to embrace the fantastic, Il Mago di Oz will speak directly to young people and the child in all of us.
Join Dorothy along the Yellow Brick Road!
