When The World Was Wide

Concert Hall, QPAC

28 Nov, 2019

Presented by Camerata and QPAC

Not quite a concert, not quite a play, When The World Was Wide is a melding of narrative, acting and concert music. It digs deep into the life and sparring friendship of two of Australia’s most iconic poets and writers, Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson, drawing on atmospheric and evocative music to set the scene. When the World Was Wide is the fifth collaboration between Camerata and Tama Matheson. Audiences and critics continue to praise these adventurous artistic collaborations.

This was engaging and significant … such success in the vexed terrain of interdisciplinary venture is rare. Gillian Wills, Limelight Magazine (2017) on The White Mouse.
