Live On Stage
One of the most outstanding young singers to emerge from Australia in recent years, Nicole Car has transformed from one of Opera Australia’s Young Artists to an acclaimed soprano in demand across the world. Fresh from performances as Tatyana in “Eugene Onegin” at the Opéra Bastille, Nicole stars as Thaïs, the disillusioned courtesan, opposite Canadian baritone Etienne Dupuis as the man who cannot resist her charms, Athanaël. The Opera Australia Orchestra will play the powerful score in a rare opportunity to hear Massenet’s exotic masterpiece performed live in concert.
22 and 24 July, Sydney Town Hall, 483 George Street, Sydney. 9318 8200. opera.org.au
