Pinchgut Opera, 2023

New production

Rinaldo, directed by Louisa Muller, gave the opera's fantastical Crusades setting a clean-lined, contemporary sensibility driven by the most delightful of human impulses. Make love, not war, was the message.”


“…one of the best in Pinchgut's portfolio of over thirty productions.”


“Louisa Muller used these da capos skillfully to direct the action towards the next scene....Muller's use of mirrors for magic was another masterstroke of direction, spellbinding indeed.”

Australian Stage

“Muller moves the drama at a cracking pace, and there are some delightful theatrical effects and impressive entrances.”
