Nicole Car in Recital
3 August 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm AEST$99 – $149
Adored Australian soprano Nicole Car will unite with her husband, internationally acclaimed baritone Etienne Dupuis, and pianist Jayson Gillham for a recital of romantic opera arias and duets.
Car and Dupuis, lauded for their recent performances in the Metropolitan Opera’s production of La Bohème, are sure to delight Australian opera fans across the country in this special recital series presented by Andrew McKinnon.
Audiences will be captivated by the program of exquisite French and Spanish songs, arias and duets from Gounod’s Faust and Verdi’s Il trovatore, as well as solo performances by Gillham of works by Debussy and Granados.
Car is one of the most outstanding young singers to emerge from Australia in recent years. With the New York Times praising her for her “fine-grained tone and nuanced acting”, Car has quickly established herself as one of the most brilliant stars in today’s operatic firmament, regularly performing at top opera houses across the globe, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Paris Opera and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. Applauded for his “suave, empathetic baritone” and his “refined, charismatic” stage presence by the New York Times, Dupuis has already made a name for himself on the international stage.
Car and Dupuis will be joined by Jayson Gillham, who is recognised as one of the finest pianists of his generation. With his compelling performances and abiding elegance, Gillham is in high demand and regularly performs with some of the world’s leading orchestras.
