Wollondilly Australia Day Ambassador
Posted on: 15.12.2015
Wollondilly Shire Council is pleased to announce the Wollondilly Australia Day Ambassador for next January is Australian soprano Amelia Farrugia. Ms Farrugia will attend the Wollondilly Australia Day celebrations on 26 January in the beautiful Picton Botanic Gardens.
One of Opera Australia’s favourite star sopranos, Amelia Farrugia recently made her role debut as Alice Ford in Falstaff and performed the title roles of Massenet’s Manon and Lehar’s The Merry Widow. Amelia has performed for Glyndebourne Festival Opera (UK), Spoleto Festival Italy, Opera Hong Kong and recently joined the roster of The Metropolitan Opera in New York (covering Anna Netrebko in Manon).
Australia Day Ambassadors are both inspiring in their own achievements and inspired by the communities they connect with. By meeting with locals they experience the diversity of life in a different part of their state or territory, getting involved with communities of all shapes and sizes to celebrate everything great about Australia.
