One of the world's top countertenors makes his Australian debut with Erin Helyard and the inimitable Orchestra of the Antipodes. An unmissable evening of Handel, Vivaldi, Hasse, Porpora and more from one of Europe's brightest stars.
A unique blend of beauty and brilliance, Farnace finds Vivaldi at the pinnacle of his operatic career. This rarely performed gem is the ideal candidate to receive the unique Pinchgut touch. This is orchestral colour and dramatic characterisation, combined in one of Vivaldi's greatest theatrical triumphs.
Shining music for voices and brass, as glorious as the gold mosaics of St Mark’s Basilica. Immerse yourself in the transcendent beauty of Allegri's sublime Miserere and the rich resonances of Renaissance masters Claudio Monteverdi and Giovanni Gabrieli: the original surround sound.
Charpentier's sensual lyricism and dramatic insight take us deep inside the mind and heart of this terrifying woman who refuses to be a victim - even at the cost of her own flesh and blood.Pinchgut Opera brings Médée's legendary story to the Australian stage for the first time, with all the grace, eloquence and power of the French Baroque era.
Music fit for royalty: Charpentier’smajestic Te Deum was written in honour of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and its grandeur and elegance reflect the magnificence of his palace at Versailles. Across the Channel, written just one year later, Purcell’s Come, Ye Sons of Art celebrates the birthday of Queen Mary with music of sheer delight.
An absolute must for lovers of Handel, Rinaldo is a towering Baroque opera and a masterpiece of musical drama. Sublime arias, lush instrumentation and high drama make Rinaldo an undeniable show-stopper. Experience the joy of Handel at his best, brought to life in a way only Pinchgut Opera can deliver. This will be a performance not to be missed.
