For one memorable night a year, the historic Queen Victoria Market is transformed into a theatre like no other - the famous fruit & veg stalls will make way for front stalls as Opera in the Market takes centre stage. The evening was hosted by Guy Noble and featured performers Teddy Tahu Rhodes, Taryn Fiebig, Milijana Nikolic, Rosario La Spina. Sound was mixed by our Kelvin Gedye and designed in collaboration with John Scandrett. Stage sound technician was Greg Blades. We trialed CQ-1 clusters this year for wider coverage with an expanded audience area and to great success. Despite the occasional truck passing the sheds actually have a great acoustic which the audience and performers alike enjoy!
