mind and body"
New York Times
Soloists Elise Caluwaerts and Wiard Witholt

In their Australian debut, soloists Elise Caluwaerts and Wiard Witholt trace the doomed voyage of mythical lovers Orpheus and Eurydice in Passion. This 21st century take on Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo
is from France’s Pascal Dusapin, a composer renowned for his supple melodies, complex textures and mastery of the human voice.
With Sydney’s daring contemporary opera company, Sydney Chamber Opera, in full cry and European director Pierre Audi at the helm, scaling the heights of Passion
will be an experience not to be missed.View the Passion Program PDF online, here.
