West Australian Opera presents Oratorio in association with UWA Conservatorium of Music.
An anthem to new beginnings
Pure voiced chants will echo among the arches of Winthrop Hall leading the way to divine celebration. Prepare to be moved as the Hall resonates with the wonderful sounds of 100 young singers and instrumentalists from UWA Conservatorium of Music, in collaboration with West Australian Opera principal artists in this special event.
Bach’s Easter Oratorio narrates the resurrection of Jesus, shifting from solo melodies to the triumph of the orchestra as the singers’ voices intertwine with each other in this rich and whirling score.
Joining the Bach, responding to its text and the architecture of the space, is a new commission from Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth. The new with the old will be linked together in this world premiere season of WA’s brightest talent.
