A Brisbane Bel Canto event

A NEW FESTIVAL FOR THE BRISBANE STAGE

Jessica Pratt in Concert
with Queensland Symphony Orchestra

Jessica Pratt celebrates the music of Vincenzo Bellini for a special one-night-only concert of spectacular highlights from the bel canto repertoire. Joined by beloved tenors Carlos Bárcenas and Rosario La Spina with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra under the baton of conductor Richard Mills.

Hailed by The New York Times as a soprano of “gleaming sound, free and easy high notes, agile coloratura runs and lyrical grace”, Jessica Pratt is considered one of today’s foremost interpreters of bel canto’s most challenging repertoire, having adorned the stages of the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Staatsoper Hamburg and been awarded the Vienna State Opera Award.

Bellini understood the human voice as few others have done, his musical text capable of almost Shakespearean infinite variety. The program showcases work exploring the heroes and heroines from the bel canto canon that will delight opera lovers and reveal a richly layered world of song for those new to the genre. Expect a repertoire that includes works from Norma, including the famous “Casta diva” aria, I Puritani and the rarely performed Beatrice di Tenda.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
Running time – Approximately 2 hr and 30min including interval
