Celebrating Brett Dean

Rarely has an operatic event taken the musical world by storm such as Brett Dean’s Hamlet did on its premiere in the UK in June 2017. In the wake of that international acclaim, Brett Dean is now established as one of the world’s most revered composers. Brett returns home to ANAM to direct the ANAM Orchestra in a thoughtfully curated program of Australian orchestral music, including the Australian premiere of his From Melodious Lay, the song cycle drawn from his Shakespearean opera.
