CREATIVE CUTS - The Puccini Effect

​Puccini loved women. His operatic heroines of Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Mimi are what legends are made of, but so far little has been told about what, or more importantly, who inspired these passionate women of opera.


This one-woman show is a hot-blooded hybrid of drama and operatic recital. It paints the lust, romance, jealousy and passion of Puccini’s real-life love affairs and dramatically links his real-life women with the infamous “suffering heroines” portrayed in his opera masterpieces. 

Don't miss soprano Vanessa West singing some of the most beautiful arias ever composed, accompanied by Associate Artist Angus Grant, on June 30 at 2pm, the Maleny Community Centre. Visit to book tickets.
