To the Music Lovers,
Canberra’s love affair with opera continues in February at Albert Hall.
This concert was full of fabulous gowns and soaring voices, our guests enjoyed dinner lit by candlelight, with beautifully decked out tables. Coffee and dessert was served before the finale, when the audience sang along to the vivacious Toreador!
"A WONDERFUL SOPRANO: This year we're lucky to be performing
with the winner of the Joan Sutherland Memorial Award: the wonderful
soprano Rhian Saunders. As well as playing "Micaela" in our selections from "Carmen", Rhian will join the fabulous baritone Raphael Hudson in the sumptuous duet version of "Stranger in Paradise" from "Kismet". Rhian is one of the finest Australian sopranos, with a ravishing tone and lovely presence."
