TOAST OF THE OPERA WORLD, HUSBAND & WIFE NICOLE CAR & ÉTIENNE DUPUIS TEAM UP FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE RECITAL SERIES
Adored Australian soprano Nicole Car will unite with her husband, internationally acclaimed baritone Étienne Dupuis, and pianist Jayson Gillham for a recital of romantic opera arias and duets in Melbourne Recital Centre this August.
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 Great Performers recital. Audiences will be captivated by the program of exquisite French and Spanish songs, featuring arias and duets from Gounod’s Faust and Verdi’s Il trovatore.
Car is one of the most outstanding young singers to emerge from Australia in recent years. With The New York Times praising 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.
Joining husband and wife Car and Dupuis, Jayson Gillham 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.
