We’re excited to announce that ‘Heroines’, a live recording of our 2018 concerts with Australian star soprano Nicole Car, will be released this coming Friday 5 October on ABC Classics.

Recorded across multiple dates of our national tour, the release features Nicole Car collaborating with Richard Tognetti and the Orchestra to portray some of the most powerful women in opera.

“Here we present Nicole Car, a singer at the top of her game, to portray heroines including the courageous Queen Dido, wrathful Deidamia, the doomed Desdemona,” said Richard Tognetti, Artistic Director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra. “These are characters who face the very depths of human expression – joy and hope, grief and despair – with resilience and strength.”

Car, who is currently making her Met Opera debut as Mimi in La bohème, has been going from strength the strength in the last few years, rapidly rising through the ranks to become one of the most sought-after sopranos on the international circuit.

The 21-track album will be available to buy in CD and digital formats, or stream via your favourite platform. We will update this article with a link when the release becomes available.
