It was the second night of Attila, the little-performed Verdi classic staged in Australia only because of the agreement forged with Milan’s legendary opera house La Scala.
“I was sitting in G25. We did two performances then we were kicked out of the Opera House,” Terracini says. “That night Australia went into COVID lockdown.”
