Nicole Car: Heroines

Nicole Car: Heroines
$ 25.00


Richard Tognetti Director
Nicole Car Soprano
Satu Vänskä Violin


In 2018 we toured with Australia's operatic sensation Nicole Car for the very first time. Recorded live during the tour, 'Heroines' captures the sparks that flew as the singer, Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra worked together to bring some of the most powerful women in opera to life.

“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.”

Released through ABC Classic, the 21-track album is available to own in physical and digital formats.
