Pinchgut Opera presents Women of the Pietà


Saturday 10 September from 2pm to 4pm Sunday 11 September from 5pm to 7pm


Starting from: $59Under 30s: $55

An unmissable concert experience featuring a crack ensemble of singers and players to re-create the splendour and sound of the music performed by the women and girls at Vivaldi’s Ospedale della Pietà, the renowned home for orphaned girls in Venice where Vivaldi was master of the violin.

This sublime program, showcasing music by Vivaldi and others, features one of Pinchgut’s dearest friends: longtime audience favourite, soprano Miriam Allan, who most recently drew international acclaim after her stellar performance at Prince Phillip’s funeral in London in 2021.

Miriam will be joined by a glorious chorus of twelve women and an ensemble of expert orchestral players featuring the female talent of the Orchestra of the Antipodes. Be transported to Vivaldi’s Venice by the stunning sounds of the world’s best Baroque specialists, led by Erin Helyard. Don’t miss this extraordinary and unique concert event that celebrates Vivaldi’s timeless beauty.
