Donizetti

A ruthless woman with a secret son. A jealous husband bent on vengeance. A young orphan, whose loyalty will cost him his life. It’s got poison and betrayals galore. But the best reason to see Lucrezia Borgia in concert is to bask in the skills of an extraordinary soprano. Impossible trills and stratospheric notes make this classic Donizetti an important conquest for the best coloratura sopranos. Like Joan Sutherland before her, superstar Jessica Pratt has made this music her home. Her agile soprano rings out on stages all over the world, including the famed boards of La Scala. This is your chance to hear Jessica Pratt perform the title role of Lucrezia Borgia (including the infamous final aria) in concert. Carlo Montanaro conducts a wonderful cast, including Giuseppe Gipali as Gennaro, Michael Honeyman as Duke Alfonso and Varduhi Abrahamyan as Orsini. You can hear the splendour of the Opera Australia Orchestra in Hamer Hall.
