Lisa Gasteen Returns

Wagner & Bruckner

Power of the voice
With Simone Young
Dates Fri 9 Aug, Sat 10 Aug Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 2 hours (incl. 20-min interval)

Experience the richness of the Romantic orchestral sound and the power of the voice with  Wagner and Bruckner.

Lisa Gasteen is a star - commanding the big roles of the operatic stage. In 2013 she makes a long-awaited return to the Sydney Symphony, performing Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder - five intense songs inspired by the elation and heartbreak of a great love affair. It's Tristan und Isolde in miniature.

The inspiration behind Bruckner's final, unfinished symphony was not earthly love but religious faith, and the result is transcendent in its luminous beauty. In Simone Young we have Australia's most significant interpreter of Bruckner. When she came to Sydney in 2010 to conduct Bruckner's Seventh,The Australian praised her performance for its "expansive, long-breathed lines" and "thrilling cumulative power". Bruckner fans: look forward to another sublime treat.
