Richard Tognetti Director
Nicole Car Soprano
Satu Vänskä Violin
Soprano Nicole Car is one of Australia’s best-loved, world-class operatic success stories.
Known for her outstanding performances around the world – from Covent Garden and Paris, to Berlin and across North America – Nicole has risen to stratospheric heights.
Hear her in her only Australian orchestral performances in 2018, in a program that celebrates the majesty and musicality of this special voice with works by Mozart, Beethoven and Verdi.
Continuing this thème des femmes, our Principal Violin Satu Vänskä will play Beethoven’s Romance in F major, and after 800 years, 12th-century German Benedictine abbess Hildegard of Bingen will make her ACO mainstage debut with her ‘Ave Maria, O auctrix vite’, paired with Verdi’s ‘Ave Maria’ from Otello.
Richard Tognetti concludes the program leading the ACO’s first performance of Mozart’s sparkling Symphony No.27.
