A triumph of casting and repertoire, Pinchgut Opera is proud to present four-time Grammy Award-nominated queen of opera Vivica Genaux with an all-star cast.
Vivica Genaux stars as Mandane, beloved of Arbace, who is accused of murdering her father to ascend to his throne.
Will she stand by him, and what is the truth?
Pinchgut favourite and Australian star David Hansen takes on the role that Farinelli made famous, and the remarkable Helpmann Award-winning countertenor Carlo Vistoli joins them in the role of villainous Artabano.
Hasse's Artaserse has never been performed in Australia, and Pinchgut Opera is excited to revive this work under the sure hand of Artistic Director Erin Helyard.
|Conductor & Harpsichord||Erin Helyard|
