Platée Pre-Opera Podcast

By Pinchgut Opera | podcast | 30 Nov 2021 |

Platée's pre-opera podcast hosted by Genevieve Lang with very special guests Pinchgut Opera's Artistic Director Erin Helyard, and cast members Kanen Breen and Cathy-Di Zhang.

Celebrated Australian director Neil Armfield makes his Pinchgut debut in a deliciously twisted comedy by one of the greatest French baroque composers. Rameau clearly enjoyed himself composing this one-of-a-kind comédie lyrique, for the marriage of the Dauphin Louis XV to the Princess Maria Teresa of Spain – reputedly a woman of very little beauty – telling the story of the irresistibly outlandish marsh nymph Platée being tricked into believing that Jupiter is in love and wants to marry her.

Platée | City Recital Hall | 1 - 8 December.

Pinchgut Opera acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the first story-tellers and singers of songs. We pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging.
