Vivica Genaux in Concert

2018
Melbourne Recital Centre

Pinchgut Opera is delighted to bring Vivica Genaux to Melbourne in this extraordinary Melbourne-only concert event.

One of the world’s great mezzo-sopranos, Vivica Genaux, joins an ensemble of Australia’s finest early music musicians, led by the Helpmann Award winning 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.
