Australian Chamber Orchestra | 'The Crowd & I' touring season
August Richard Tognetti directs the ACO live on stage alongside striking imagery and footage captured from across the globe, including vast refugee camps, epic gatherings in the name of religion, and secular festivals where hedonism rules. Joy holds hands with sorrow. The Individual is inseparable from The Crowd.
Muffat Collective's 'Love From Paris |
9th October One of Australia’s most talented sopranos and rising stars, Chloe Lankshear joins us for a declamation of passionate love songs from mid eighteenth-century France. Flirting with the limits of our human desire, these rarely performed works frenetically exchange love for hate, despair for joy. Through an uninterrupted pastiche of instrumental trios and dramatic cantatas we celebrate the beautiful paradox of love.
Pinchgut Opera | 'Médée'
December Lankshear joins Pinchgut Opera as 'Nerine' for their 2022 December opera.
Originally scheduled in Pinchgut Opera’s 2020 season, the greatest opera of the French Baroque era finally takes the stage in 2022. Médée is high drama and emotion: French tragédie lyrique in its most classic form. The sorceress Médée is driven by desperation and the abandonment of her lover Jason to do the unthinkable, and ultimately murder her own children.
