In Conversation

Craig HassallBe it the ballet, opera, theatre, classical music or a couple of Olympic Games, Craig Hassall has been involved for the past 28 years in one position or another. Currently he is CEO of Opera Australia and is faced with the problem of what to do when the opera theatre is closed next year for much needed refurbishment. One answer the company has come up with is intriguing and he will speak with Michael Morton-Evans about it on In Conversation Wednesday September 7th at 2pm. We hope you can join us then.

Fine Music 102.5 presenter Michael Morton-Evans is your host for In Conversation. The show features the stories behind the sounds.

In the hour long program Michael meets some of the world's great musicians, singers, composers, conductors along with up-and-comers and those who influence the arts landscape.
