‘Nicole Car is one of our finest classical singers. Her performances with Opera Australia have been a succession of triumphs.’ The Australian
Nicole Car is the kind of artist who can reduce you to tears in a tragic role like Mimi, or transport you with the sheer beauty of her voice. Her partner Etienne Dupuis is a baritone with an equally stellar career. We’re delighted they’re sharing our stage in the company of Jayson Gillham.
Nicole Car is one of Australia’s most exciting operatic talents, a soprano with a meltingly lovely voice, the charisma of a true star and a career trajectory to match. She has just made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Mimi in La boheme sharing the stage, as it happens, with her husband, the equally stellar baritone Etienne Dupuis. They’re reunited on our stage to perform the delicately nostalgic mélodies of Duparc, Hahn, Fauré and highlights from French opera – both solo and together – in a celebration of virtuoso finesse and undeniable chemistry.
