Bodies fly, voices soar and emotions run riot in this visceral new dance opera experience.

Abandon takes Händel’s gems and infuses them with thrilling physicality. Feel the energy of this inspiring ensemble of singers, dancers and musicians in a unique integration of stunning physical dance and operatic performance exploring the themes of heartbreak, jealousy and madness in Händel’s timeless music.

Abandon is the critically-acclaimed collaboration between Dancenorth’s Raewyn Hill, Opera Queensland’s Lindy Hume and classical accordion virtuoso James Crabb.

Originally produced by Dancenorth and Opera Queensland. Toured by Dancenorth and Opera Queensland, with the support of the Queensland Government via Arts Queensland, the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Townsville City Council.

Produced by: OperaQ Studio and Dancenorth

Inspired by: The da capo aria form of musical composition. A form with a three-phase journey interpreting, analysing and exploring a single emotion in depth and complexity.

Known for: Queensland's flagship Opera company collaborating with one of Australia's foremost contemporary dance companies.
