STAR NAVIGATOR (IHITAI 'AVEI'A)
Tim Finn OBE
Based on the true story of Tupaia, a Tahitian star navigator who sailed with James Cook on the Endeavour, this beautiful and haunting work explores the 1770 meeting of two master mariners. Each is from a vastly different place and culture. As they journey together the understanding they develop highlights not only their differences but shared terror, love of the sea and the worlds around them.
Star Navigator is a new work by Tim Finn OBE originally commissioned by West Australian Opera, New Zealand Opera and Victorian Opera supported by the state government of Western Australia.
This landmark event will be presented as a staged concert with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
COVID-19 safety measures will be in place at this performance.
