MUSIC FROM THE BASILICA OF SAN MARCO VENICE
MELBOURNE - Sun 8 June, 3pm Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 218 Richardson St Middle Park

San Marco, with its golden domes, dominates the profile of the ancient island city of Venice. Out of this majestic edifice has come some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring choral music ever written. The Australian Chamber Choir (ACC) will recreate some of the magic of San Marco, performing works by Monteverdi, Schütz, Willaert, Lotti and Gabrieli in their second concert of 2014, Music from the Basilica of San Marco Venice.

Adding to the aural magic, the 18-member Choir will be accompanied by an array of early instruments including cornetto, rackett, curtals, sackbuts, baroque violin and chamber organ.

Death by Soprano by Isabel Hertaeg

Filed under: contemporary art, opera, Comedy, Theatre, Gigs — site admin @ 7:17 pm

Opera-Cabaret, Death By Soprano.
Season Dates Oct 15-17 at 7.30pm.
Death By Soprano
It’s not over ‘till the Soprano is dead.

Whilst sharpening the operatic blade in her cabaret toolbox, internationally renowned cabaret artist Isabel Hertaeg realised that being a soprano is a dangerous occupation. The average life expectancy of a soprano is 3 Acts, 2 Hours and 47 Minutes and thousands of sopranos have been sacrificed in the name of Art since opera began in 1598.
In this life affirming black comedy, operatic soprano, Isabel Hertaeg attempts to survive to the end of a performance.
Consequently, a smorgasbord of ‘operatic occupational hazards’ are explored in an alphabetical romp through Grande Opera, from ‘A for Avalanche’ to ‘S for Suicide’. If she got to ‘Z’ it wouldn’t be opera!
