Countertenor Valer Sabadus will be performing in Australia for the first time in collaboration with Pinchgut Opera on August 25, 2019.

The recital will take place at the City Recital Hall in Sydney and will feature the Orchestra of Antipodes under the musical direction of Erin Heylard. It will feature music by Handel, Caldara, Hasse, Vivaldi, and Porpora.

Sabadus is a world-renowned countertenor who has performed at such major theaters as the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, Opéra Royal de Versailles, Theater an der Wien in Vienna and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam.

“With his crystal clear, agile, and shining voice,Valer Sabadus is undoubtably one of the world’s leading countertenors with an unrivalled depth of musicianship and a captivating stage presence,” stated Helyard, who is also Pinchgut Opera’s Artistic Director. “We at Pinchgut Opera and the Orchestra of the Antipodes are delighted to welcome him to City Recital Hall to celebrate the golden age of bel canto singing in a glorious selection of contrasting opera arias from the mid eighteenth century.”
