This new opera by Brenton Broadstock is about the experiences of four Royal Australian Army Nurses Corps nurses who arrived in Vung Tau, Vietnam in May 1967 – the first of 43 Aussie nurses who would be sent to the conflict zone over the course of the war. The storyline and libretto are by soprano Elizabeth Lewis, inspired by Annabelle Brayley’s book Our Vietnam Nurses. The opera follows one nurse in particular (a fictional character based on several nurses who were interviewed for the project). Soprano Emma Nightingale stars.
