Vivaldi’s operas are a unique blend of beauty and brilliance.
Farnace is a passionate drama of political and dynastic intrigue: in the ultimate test of family loyalties, Farnace and his mother-in-law Berenice are pitted against each other for political gain and control of the kingdom.
This was one of Vivaldi’s most meticulously prepared operas, with orchestral colour and dramatic characterisation combined in one of his greatest theatrical triumphs. Pinchgut Opera have assembled some of the world’s finest voices to bring these characters to life and showcase Vivaldi’s thrilling tunes.
The title role will be sung by acclaimed countertenor Christopher Lowrey (Theodora), with Jacqueline Dark as his scheming mother-in-law. Joining them are Helpmann Award winner Taryn Fiebig, Helen Sherman and emerging Australian countertenor Max Riebl, making his Pinchgut debut.
Running time: approximately 3 hours, including one interval.
Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
