Event description

As the finale to the Emerging From Darkness exhibition and associated series of events, we are delighted to welcome the Internationally renowned Australian Chamber Choir to present a one-off performance of Agatha in Vivaldi’s Venice. 

> Note - Tickets via Emerging from Darkness - Australian Chamber Choir (, not via this Humanitix event.

This will be a sublime live musical experience in an atmospheric church, as Douglas Lawrence directs some of the country's best choral singers, period instrument specialists and soloists to bring to life the sounds of the Italian baroque.

Born without the fingers of her left hand, Agatha was given up shortly after her birth in 1712 to the Venetian orphanage known as the Ospedale della Pietà. Educated in the music school that was made famous by Antonio Vivaldi, Agatha’s career as a singer and singing teacher is well documented. But her compositions have remained hidden in a Venetian library for 300 years and are only now emerging from the darkness. Agatha’s Cantata, Ecce nunc is performed with choir, soloists and an orchestra alongside Vivaldi’s Magnificat.
