Farnace - Pinchgut Opera (SYDNEY)

Vivaldi's Farnace

Vivaldi’s operas are a unique blend of beauty and brilliance, and in Farnace we find the composer at the pinnacle of his operatic career. This rarely performed gem is the ideal candidate to receive the unique Pinchgut touch. Farnace is a passionate drama of political and dynastic intrigue: in the ultimate test of family loyalties, Farnace and his mother-in-law Berenice are pitted against each other for political gain and control of the kingdom.

This was one of Vivaldi’s most meticulously prepared operas, with orchestral colour and dramatic characterisation combined in one of his greatest theatrical triumphs. We have assembled some of the world’s finest voices – some already Pinchgut favourites – to bring these characters to life and to showcase Vivaldi’s thrilling tunes. The title role will be sung by acclaimed countertenor Christopher Lowrey (Theodora), with Jacqueline Dark as his scheming mother-in-law. Joining them are Helpmann Award winner Taryn Fiebig (Rameau: Anacréon, Pigmalion), Helen Sherman (Bajazet, The Coronation of Poppea) and emerging Australian countertenor Max Riebl, making his Pinchgut debut.

Mind Over Matter - The Song Company (NORTH SYDNEY)

A cartoonesque prequel to Anna’s Rapid Eye Movement (premiered by The Song Company in Sydney Opera House), Mind Over Matter is a family-friendly musical / chamber comic opera for 5 singers, speaking piano duet and computer operator, by the Company’s Artistic Director, Antony Pitts, with theatrical direction by Leonie Cambage. The story is set (not far) in the future: the world has been taken over by a giant computer corporation called BABEL, run by a man known simply as “the Boss”, and, as usual, someone is trying to hack into its central server. BABEL’s corporate headquarters has 127 floors and just two lifts (with personalities of their own). There is a Guard who rarely ventures off the ground floor, two suspicious-sounding characters called Rime and Reezon, two identical briefcases, an executive called Mabel all-too-open to the algorithmic power of Artificial Intelligence, and Anna herself – dizzy at the apex of an impossible love triangle. What else could possibly go wrong? The music is inspired by the melodic pop of the 1980s and the program begins and ends with arrangements of some classic hits from Joe Jackson’s Steppin' Out to Wang Chung’s Dance Hall Days.

Beasts and Battles

Adelaide Baroque Orchestra Presents
Beast and Battles
Conducted by Ben Dollman
With special guests Max Riebl (countertenor) and Guy Fishman (cello)

Vivid depictions of war in Biber’s 1673 Battalia, Telemann’s portrayal of Don Quixote attacking the windmills; the conflicts in Purcell’s King Arthur, Handel’s Orlando, and Matthew Locke’s The Tempest and Corette’s portrayal of Native American War dances. The Beasts (real or imagined) give this seventeenth century program another dimension and depth: Biber’s unseen enemy, the monster that Orlando begs to battle, the Cold Genius from King Arthur, and Don Quixote’s ‘thirty or forty hulking giants’. Fiery, vibrant, passionate and unpredictable music from turbulent times and the genius of Handel, Telemann, Purcell, Locke, Corrette and Biber.

Carissimi: Historia di Jephte - The Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir & Orchestra

Carissimi: Historia di Jephte - The Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir & Orchestra

Giacomo Carissimi (c.1605 – 1674) is today celebrated as one of the most important masters of the early Italian Baroque. Carissimi established the characteristic features of the Latin oratorio and was a prolific composer of motets and cantatas. He was highly influential in musical developments in north European countries through his pupils and the wide dissemination of his music. His oratorio Historia di Jephte, composed around 1648, is based on the story of Jephtha in the Old Testament Book of Judges, and is scored for 7 solo voices, 6 part chorus, flutes, and plucked strings. Easily Carissimi’s best-known composition, the oratorio is written in the operatic, declamatory style developed by Monteverdi and others at the beginning of the 17th Century.

The famous last chorus, ‘Plorate filli Israel’ (‘Weep all ye daughters of Israel’), is widely considered one of the greatest choruses ever composed. Full of taut suspensions and agonizingly beautiful vocal lines it uses dense harmony from the six-part choir to paint the weeping of a community for a young girl who’s about to be sacrificed. It grips both performer and listener to the very last note.
