Event description

Join Australian Baroque and West Australian Opera Principal Artist Rachelle Durkin for an explosive program of arias and concertos by Handel and Vivaldi performed under the whale at the WA Museum.


Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Baroque opera with Rachelle Durkin and the Australian Baroque in Un Bellissimo Fuoco — an evening of sublime vocal artistry and timeless masterpieces.

Experience the gripping drama of Handel's "Vo'far guerra" from Rinaldo, where love and conflict intertwine in a powerful display of passion. Delve into the emotional depth of Handel's Rodelinda as Queen Rodelinda navigates loss and renewal. Feel the intense emotions of Vivaldi's In Furore, exploring themes of divine anger and redemption.

Explore the complexities of love and betrayal in Handel's "Consolati o bella" from Orlando, a heartfelt aria revealing the turmoil of a love triangle. Celebrate love's triumph with Handel's exuberant "Bravo Aver Mille" from Ariodante, an aria bursting with joy and heartfelt emotion. Discover the haunting beauty of Purcell's "Music for a While", offering solace amidst the emotional journey of the evening.


This incredible program is the third in our four-part series in collaboration with West Australian Opera, celebrating the grandeur of the Baroque era.
