A globally renowned opera singer is excited to experience an intimate show in a new setting when he ventures to Broome for the first time.

Bass-baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes is one of four special guest performers at the upcoming Opera Under the Stars performance at the Mangrove Hotel on Saturday, August 31.

Known for his wide-ranging repertoire on both the opera stage and concert platform, Tahu Rhodes has performed in many productions and concerts all over the world.

Throughout his career, he has won many awards including an ARIA award, two Helpmann Awards, a Limelight award, and most recently a Green Room award for his work with Opera Australia.

Tahu Rhodes, who has not been to Broome before, said he was very excited to be part of Opera Under the Stars after hearing great things about the town from fellow singers who performed in previous Opera Under the Stars events.

“I’ve been told the sunset up at Cable Beach is quite incredible so I’m very excited to come and experience it myself,” he said.

“I am also excited by the prospect of this sort of intimate outdoor show because the location really becomes a part of the entire experience.

“The romantic side of sitting outside and listening to what is ultimately fantastic music is just a beautiful way to spend an evening.

“We also get to interact with the audience more in these types of shows.”

Tahu Rhodes said people can expect to hear from some “really fabulous singers” in soprano Georgia Wilkinson and mezzo-soprano Bronwyn Douglass, aside from himself, as well as pianist Phoebe Briggs.
