The world premier of Golden Summers, Masterpieces that Sing, was devised, written and directed by Melvyn Morrow, with music by James Long. The work was commissioned and produced by the Mosman Art Gallery as part of the Festival of Mosman, from the 3rd until the 5th of November 2011. Golden Summers, Masterpieces that Sing was based on the director's reaction to seeing the Golden Summers art exhibition in 1985. Morrow cleverly uses three opera singers and a narrator Miss Primrose Quince (Jean Kittson) to explore the meanings of the paintings, making the audience question the painters methods and purpose. This piece was an original idea incorporating the art world with performance, music and visuals. 4 performances.
