The Apollo Opera Collective presents George Frideric Handel’s Ariodante in partnership with the Sydney Baroque Music Festival. This thrilling modern production of a rarely performed work, uses historically informed performance practice to explore the twisted and dangerous love story of Ariodante and Ginevra, under the direction of Anthea Hewett.
The Apollo Opera Collective is an exciting new opera company presenting Baroque works with Australia’s best young voices. Led by Artistic Director Keiren Brandt-Sawdy, Assistant Conductor of Pinchgut Opera and a graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s conducting program, AOC aims to provide a much-needed platform for talented young artists to develop the expertise to launch their careers. The company is entirely driven by the artists themselves, who work collaboratively on all the different aspects of staging the opera.
