Pearls & Opera in the Kimberley
In September, Get Up & Go will be sailing on the Orion in and around the Kimberley. This is a 'wish list' kind of holiday - but there's a couple of fantastic special cruises happening before I go, see below:
Exquisite pearls and fine opera combine as naturally as champagne and caviar or Orion and the Kimberley, and this year two Orion Kimberley voyages provide exclusive inclusions for those interested in the finer things in life.
Join either 10 night Orion voyage and receive an invitation to the highlight of Broome's cultural events calendar of the year, OPERA UNDER THE STARS®, featuring performers of national and international acclaim including soprano Antoinette Halloran, tenors Aldo Di Toro and Stuart Skelton, and baritone, James Clayton.
• 19 August 2010 Pearls of the Kimberley or
• 29 August 2010 Kimberley Expedition
In addition, the Pearls of the Kimberley voyage incorporates Orion’s first visit to Rowley Shoals plus a Paspaley Pearls special event held at their South Sea Pearl Farm, Kuri Bay, including a cocktail party featuring opera singers flown in for this exclusive private performance.
Both voyages include Orion’s signature Kimberley explorations highlighting the visual drama of 3000km of Kimberley coast with its ancient indigenous rock art, vast tidal changes, emerging reefs, dramatic waterfalls and prolific marine life – all experienced in a relaxed atmosphere of five star comfort under the watchful eye of 75 professional crew.
