Sara Macliver and Fiona Campbell | Divine Duets

2 September 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

This concert is live streamed on Melbourne Digital Concert Hall

Divine Duets is a collection of the most divine operatic, sacred and secular duets written by Mozart, Bellini, Delibes, Handel, Mendelssohn and Rossini.

Fiona and Sara have performed all over Australia together with the finest ensembles and orchestras. Their musical and vocal unity delivers a degree of nuance and finesse rarely heard in this duet repertoire. Fiona and Sara’s longstanding friendship brings a warmth and sparkle to their performances, with the added bonus in this concert of interesting anecdotes and musical insights. They love nothing more than to sing for an appreciative audience in an intimate setting and the Green Room inside Government House Perth is a unique opportunity to really get to know these divine divas.
