In August 2018 the acclaimed German soprano Gun-Brit Barkmin made her Australian debut in WASO’s Tristan und Isolde and blew everyone away. From the roar of the audience, it was clear that Perth wanted more of this exceptional artist. WASO has responded.

This evening of operatic and vocal masterworks from Beethoven, Strauss and Wagner will shine the spotlight on Barkmin’s phenomenal talent. And being renowned worldwide as one of the finest exponents of Salome, she concludes this gala event with the dramatic final scene of Strauss’ extraordinary opera.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience one of the most remarkable voices of our generation with Asher Fisch leading ‘an orchestra at the top of its game’.

Sung in German with English surtitles.
