Join Lyric Opera of Melbourne for a Cuban comedy / spy thriller operatic experience! Complete with bar, showgirls and a vacuum cleaner salesman, the black comic masterpiece Our Man in Havana comes to Melbourne as part of the Fringe Festival this September.

Composed by one of Australia’s most lauded and outrageous ex-pat composers Malcolm Williamson, Our Man in Havana is based on Graham Greene’s novel, and the Alec Guinness film of the same name. Set in Cuba during the era that saw both the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis “our man” is an unlikely recruit to the British Secret Service. But with a struggling business as a vacuum cleaner salesman and a daughter who loves to spend, when his country needs him will ‘our man’ answer the call?

Directed by Suzanne Chaundy, Our Man in Havana has an outstanding cast featuring much acclaimed opera singer and Cats star Jason Wasley, joined by international soprano Elizabeth Stannard and baritone Michael Leighton Jones. The cast includes Lyric favourites Kate Amos and Matt Thomas and an ensemble of upcoming singers, all conducted by Lyric’s Artistic Director, Pat Miller.

Our Man in Havana is unlike any opera you will have ever seen or heard: beautiful lyrical ballads mingle with the rhythms of Latin America and modernism. Lyric is pushing the boundaries of the art form and in the spirit of the Buena Vista Social Club, are creating an immersive opera cabaret experience.

Our Man in Havana will be performed Saturday 17, Tuesday 20, Thursday 22 and Saturday 24 September at 7:30pm, at Athenaeum 2 (The Comedy Club), 188 Collins Street, Melbourne.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketek, or through the Melbourne Fringe Festival at 03 9660 9666 or
