Young Opera

These four young singers are members of the Young Opera Workshop Lismore (YOWL) and are preparing for their performances of The Mikado. They are also all members of the Whitttingham family (l-r) Stephanie, Luke, Matthew and Jamie.

The Young Opera Workshop Lismore (YOWL) is a group of young people (all under 25) who perform Operettas written by such luminaries of the genre as Gilbert and Sullivan, and Offenbach. This is the YOWLs fourth year with past productions of Gilbert and Sullivans Gondoliers, Iolanthe and Jacque Offenbachs Orpheus in the Underworld. This year YOWL is putting on The Mikado. Which, as everyone knows, is a Gilbert and Sullivan classic.

The kids are working 12 hour days (Is that possible? Should I try?) for this week and then they put on three performances Friday, January 19, at 7pm; Saturday, January 20, at 1pm and 7pm at the Uniting Church in Lismore (corner of Woodlark and Molesworth Streets).

Tickets are $15/10 available at the door.
