Our Gala Event. We have created an evening of operatic and vocal masterworks from Beethoven, Strauss and Wagner to shine the spotlight on Barkmin’s phenomenal talent.

In August 2018 the acclaimed German soprano Gun-Brit Barkmin made her Australian debut in WASO’sTristan und Isoldeand blew everyone away.  And being renowned worldwide as one of the finest exponents ofSalome, we are thrilled that she concludes this gala event with the dramatic final scene of Strauss’ extraordinary opera. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience one of the most remarkable voices of our generation with Asher Fisch leading ‘an orchestra at the top of its game’.

“She gave an extraordinarily complete portrayal… It’s always a joy to hear a singer in their native tongue, and [Barkmin’s] linguistic authority made every syllable count.”- Limelight Magazine

“Gun-Brit Barkmin… was a revelation.” - The Australian
