Nicole Car Sings Mozart and Beethoven Heroines

Australia’s beloved world-class operatic success story, Soprano Nicole Car, performs her only orchestral performance in Australia for 2018, celebrating her special voice with works by Mozart, Beethoven and Verdi.

“Nicole Car gave another magnificent performance…creamy and voluptuous as the seductive pleasure-seeker, pure-toned and unembellished as a devoted believer.” – The Australian, 2017

Known for her outstanding performances around the world – from Covent Garden and Paris, to Berlin and across North America – Australia’s world-class operatic success story has risen to stratospheric heights.

Hear her in her only Australian orchestral performances in 2018, in a program directed by Richard Tognetti that celebrates the majesty and musicality of her special voice.

Continuing this thème des femmes, the ACO’s 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.
