What makes the perfect opera? Disguises, love, adultery, deception, beauty, Kings, composers, intrigue and of course- death.

The Lola Montez story has all of these and more, and she inspired an Australian Musical by the same name. What’s more there is a strong Australian connection as she danced for the miners in Australia during the goldrush and played to packed house in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Among many love affairs she was paramour to Franz Liszt and conducted a scandalous relationship with King Ludwig 1 of Bavaria, by which she unwittingly played a major role in the life of Richard Wagner.

The Friends of State Opera SA and The Richard Wagner Society of SA invite you to a presentation by Dr Geoffrey Seidel on this fascinating woman, followed by an opportunity for members and guests to mingle over afternoon tea.
