Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & The Consort of Melbourne
A story about mythological love and crisis.
About the artists
The Consort of Melbourne is a vocal ensemble that champions both historic and contemporary repertoire. They bring 1000 years of vocal harmony to life with an intimacy and verve that leaves audiences spellbound.
About the concert
Their performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall presents the Australian premiere of a ground-breaking new piece by award-winning composer Wally Gunn and librettist Maria Zajkowski.
I heart Artemis is a concert-length reimagining of Greek mythology told through a series of scenes and tableaus rendered in glorious six-part vocal harmony. Athena and Artemis meet, fall in love, and live a brief eternity of passion; but their paradise can’t last. On earth, men wage war, indulge their lusts, and exploit the land. Athena and Artemis watch in horror as the world falls apart and must unite to defend what cannot defend itself.
I heart Artemis is a story about a mythological love and a very real crisis, which asks the most pressing questions about humanity’s future.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
