Classic Arts News   Queensland Music Festival Stages Marriage of Figaro in a Shearing Shed
 
More than a thousand people attended a performance of The Marriage of Figaro in a sheep-shearing shed in western Queensland, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports.

The opera was staged in the historic Isis Downs woolshed: the largest in the Southern Hemisphere: near Isisford as part of Queensland Music Festival.

Russell Spencer, a singer in the production, praised the audience of locals from the surrounding countryside. "They picked up on a lot of things that a lot of city slickers didn't pick up on," he said, "they listened and they got every joke and they got all the nuances of it. They were a wonderful audience, one of the most wonderful audiences I've ever played to, as a matter of fact."
