Soaring voices from one of the world’s best choirs

Millions of viewers and listeners worldwide invite The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge into their homes every Christmas Eve for the annual broadcast of their iconic Nine Lessons and Carols service. Now we invite you to experience this historic ensemble live, at the Sydney Opera House, in their first visit since their sell out tour of 2019. 

This performance features Duruflé’s Requiem, a radiant meditation on life and death for choir and organ, alongside Handel’s Coronation Anthem Zadok the Priest, recently heard at the coronation of King Charles III. This promises to be an unmissable concert. 

Integral to their performance is a work commissioned from Australian composer Damian Barbeler, working with a text by Judith Nangala Crispin (a descendent of the Bpangerang people), which weaves a new tapestry from the threads of history, a dialogue in radiant song.
