The idea for the Lost Operas of Oz was inspired by the time I worked in Sydney on a few Neglected Musicals. You quickly bring together a cast, throw around some interesting ideas, and get the chance to really look at a work. Something interesting always emerges out of giving new life to a piece. I thought, well, why not do it with operas?
