Southwest of Melbourne lies a battleground, haunted with the memory of war and loss. The scars of the Eumeralla Resistance War (1840-1863) lie heavily upon the country.

Eumeralla, a war requiem for peace brings into focus a period of Australia’s history that is yet to be fully understood. Written and composed by acclaimed Yorta Yorta soprano, composer, and Artistic Director of Short Black Opera, Deborah Cheetham AO, this requiem for peace will be sung entirely in the ancient dialects of the Gunditjmara people.
