Australian Premiere of the opera BEFORE BREAKFAST by Thomas Pasatieri. Featuring Jane Ede and Kate Johnson (Opera Australia) and directed by Dan Graham (Sam I Am).

It’s early morning. Sunshine streams through the window and birds are singing.
But Charlotte is on the warpath.
Her head hurts, the bread is stale. Why can’t Alfred get a job?
A delicate waltz tinkles around the corners of the room, disturbing the ghosts of memory.
Remember when she danced for 500 hours? When a poet thought her beautiful?
Little does Charlotte know that this morning’s coffee will be served with a side of devastation.

Featuring soprano Jane Ede and pianist Kate Johnson (Opera Australia), Before Breakfast is a One Act Opera by American composer Thomas Pasatieri, after the Eugene O’Neill play.

Disability Advocate Dan Graham (Sam I Am) directs and each performance includes a brief post performance Q&A with the artists and leading Disability Arts guests, about access and opera.
