Life Drawing and Opera with Anney Bounpraseuth and Opera Australia

27 October 2024

In the Centre for Creativity


Become an active spectator in this opera-themed life drawing workshop featuring a professional Opera singer from Opera Australia performing and posing in a variety of costumes accompanied by a live pianist in the Centre for Creativity!

Be inspired by drawing Opera

Combining the drama of the opera with observant eyes of a visual artist, this workshop will transport you to the theatre. Led by visual artist Anney Bounpraseuth alongside an opera singer from Opera Australia, listen to arias as you draw your way across the texture, drapery and detail of the opera costume on display.

Not only will you be guided on how to bring the human form to life through drawing, you will have a performing, costumed opera singer as your muse along with a live pianist in a theatrical setting to inspire you. Whether you are an advanced drawer seeking access to a unique model or a beginner looking for new sensory pleasures, you will experience opera and art like never before.

Presented by Sydney Opera House
