Brass Poppies

Brass Poppies is a chamber opera from the productive relationship of composer Ross Harris and librettist Vincent O'Sullivan. It focuses on the disastrous Gallipoli campaign and the fate of the Wellington Regiment at Chunuk Bair. But it's also the human story Harris and O'Sullivan tell: by giving a voice to the women and families left behind, Brass Poppies becomes a lament for lost and damaged lives
