A voice that compels you to drop everything and listen.


Echoed voices in Hageman, Strauss and Duparc

Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg has attracted attention around the world for her incredible sound and magnetic stage presence, performing at renowned opera houses from the Royal Opera House Convent Garden to Deutsche Oper Berlin. She returns home to the Sydney Opera House, joined by pianist Nico de Villiers, for a recital of exquisite songs by Dutch-American composer and conductor Richard Hageman, alongside songs by Richard Strauss and Henri Duparc.

Limelight described Stagg and de Villiers’ recent album VOICES: Songs of Richard Hageman as “sensitive, detailed music-making that should win both soprano and composer new fans” and in this program the pair present Hageman’s songs alongside two composers who inspired him, German composer Richard Strauss and French composer Henri Duparc. Hear the echoes of inspiration resound in the Utzon Room as the music of these composers is placed side by side.
