Siobhan Stagg & Nico de Villiers: Echoed Voices

Event description

A rare opportunity to hear internationally acclaimed Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg in an exclusive lutruwita/Tasmanian performance with pianist Nico de Villiers.

Now based in Europe, Mildura-born soprano Siobhan Stagg was a member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin from 2013–19, and has appeared as guest artist in major roles at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Dutch National Opera, Opernhaus Zürich, Bayerische Staatsoper, and the Festival d'Aix en Provence, among others.

South African pianist Nico de Villiers has performed as a concerto soloist and collaborative pianist around the world, and is recognised as a leading authority on the life and music of Dutch-born American conductor, composer and pianist Richard Hageman (who won an Academy Award in 1939 for his score for John Ford's film Stagecoach).

In 2022 Siobhan and Nico recorded Voices (the first album dedicated solely to Hageman's incredibly beautiful and notably diverse songs), which was selected as 'Editor's Choice' by Limelight.

This very special one-off recital in nipaluna/Hobart sees Siobhan and Nico present a captivating recital of their favourite works from their album, alongside the music of Richard Strauss and Henri Duparc, whose distinctive musical language shaped and inspired the lush, post-Romantic sound world of Hollywood's Golden Age.
