Vivica Genaux in Concert with Erin Helyard

Vivica Genaux

Details

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

This promises to be an evening of the very best of Baroque splendor with stunning melodic lines interspersed with Vivica’s most famous vocal pyrotechnics.

Vivica Genaux is a four-time Grammy-nominated artist, described by the New York Times as “She does not sing songs as if they were autobiography, but presents them rather as art”. Vivica has appeared with some of the world’s most famous early music ensembles.

Pinchgut Opera is honoured to bring this phenomenal talent to Melbourne in the brilliant acoustic of the Melbourne Recital Centre for one night only.

Presented by Pinchgut Opera
