Vivica Genaux in Concert

One of the world’s great mezzo-sopranos, Vivica Genaux, joins an ensemble of Australia’s finest early music musicians, led by Erin Helyard for a jaw-dropping evening of Handel, Hasse, Vivaldi and other baroque contemporaries.

This concert promises to be the very best of baroque splendour with stunning melodic lines interspersed with Vivica’s most famous vocal pyrotechnics.

Vivica Genaux is a four-time Grammy-nominated artist who has appeared with some of the world’s most famous early music ensembles, including Europa Galante,  Le Concert Spirituel, Les Talens Lyriques and Akademie für Alte Musik. Pinchgut Opera is honoured to bring this phenomenal talent to Melbourne in the brilliant acoustic of the Melbourne Recital Centre for one night only. 


A singer who is not only in total command of her instrument but totally at ease with it as well.

— The Wall Street Journal

The singer was Vivica Genaux, a mezzo-soprano of Modiglianiesque beauty with a voice of penetrating purity.


She does not sing songs as if they were autobiography, but presents them rather as art.”

— The New York Times
