The Screen Guide

Deborah Cheetham has forged an impressive career as an Indigenous soprano, actor and author since making her highly acclaimed international debut just over 10 years ago. Of her many projects, perhaps none are as close to her heart as her current endeavour – Artistic Director of the opera, ‘Pecan Summer’. But, not only is Deborah writing the opera’s score and libretto – she’s also been scouring the country looking for emerging classically trained Indigenous singers to take on the challenge of performing what will be Australia’s first Indigenous opera.
