Erin Helyard and mezzo-soprano and Helen Sherman, who will play Poppea, have kicked things off with a session together at ABC's Studio 227 in Sydney ahead of rehearsals which start November 2. Here's a preview of the delights that await in our performance of Monteverdi's Coronation of Poppea.
As we prepare for Poppea, here's another video to watch to help you get ready for this extraordinary event. Here you will see Danielle de Niese and Philippe Jaroussky perform "Pur ti miro". For Pinchgut's performances, this exquisite duet will be sung by Helen Sherman and English counter-tenor Jake Arditti. Enjoy!
