Pinchgut’s 2018 Season takes the company in bold directions. We continue to explore the rich dramatic universe of Handel’s English oratorios, and venture for the first time into the glittering virtuosity of Hasse’s operas.   We are thrilled to bring to City Recital Hall one of the greatest of Hasse’s exponents and one of the finest mezzo-sopranos in the world: Vivica Genaux, as well as welcoming again beloved artists known to Pinchgut audiences and a host of new talent.

In June 2018, we will be presenting what has been described as "the first great English oratorio", Handel's Athalia.  Click here for full program details.

Then, our end of year production is set to be an un-missable event.  In a triumph of repertoire and casting we bring you Hasse's Artasere, performed for the first time in Australia.  Click here for full program details.

To top the year off, we will be presenting our first Pinchgut concert in Melbourne.   Vivica Genaux will join an ensemble of Australia’s finest early music musicians led by Erin Helyard for a jaw-dropping evening of arias and instrumental music by Handel, Hasse, Vivaldi and other baroque contemporaries.  This special event will be for one night only at the Melbourne Recital Centre.  Click here for full details and how to secure your tickets to this un-missable event.
