Camerata The Queen of the Nile

Event , Concert or Performance At Redland Performing Arts CentreRedland Performing Arts Centre

Friday 17th December
7:00 - 9:20pm

Peerless Queen, fearsome leader, and an amorous lover - Cleopatra is depicted throughout history as a woman possessing legendary intelligence and enviable beauty.

The Queen of the Nile features showpiece Baroque arias by Handel inspired by the enigmatic Egyptian monarch, alongside music by his contemporaries that will surprise and delight.

Gaining praise from critics worldwide for her ‘vivacity and clarity’, the luxurious voice of soprano Sofia Troncoso will be on full display. Sofia will feature in two arias from Handel’s Giulio Cesare, including the sublime Piangero, before the evening finishes with a burst of vocal pyrotechnics with music from Vivaldi’s opera Il Tigrane, inspired by the other Cleopatra, the Queen of Armenia.

Performing without a conductor, Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra celebrate an environment where all musicians take full ownership of their artform in the spirit of chamber music. Demonstrated in Heinrich Biber’s colourful and eccentric Battalia is their taste for flair, with virtuosity in full flight as Artistic Director Brendan Joyce takes a central role in Pisendel’s Violin Concerto in D major.

Queen of the Nile was originally presented by Musica Viva Australia in association with Camerata.
