About the show

West Australian Opera and UWA Conservatorium of Music acknowledge ANZAC Day with The Last Post, performed by UWA student Samantha Marley.

The blood of the innocent, the desperate killers,
Painted the ground like the stroke of a brush.
The fields of war once beautiful and lush,
Hold the scars of trenches before.
Bullets wedged between stones,
Soldiers fighting to get home.
This was the conflict that was waged.
That dragged the meek in with the bold,
Into the war of old.
The cries of those who fell behind,
Unwilling left to die.
Never forgotten are the soldiers who defended us from the threat,
Lest we forget.

By Jacinta Letizia

The Last Post performed by Samantha Marley from the UWA Conservatorium of Music.
