Star soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci joins the OAE for this concert that opens both the Orchestra's 2012/13 season and the Queens, Heroines and Ladykillers series. She sings three arias spanning three different musical eras, including an aria by Cherubini made famous by Maria Callas, and a touching yet powerful aria from Berlioz.
Also in the programme is Gluck's viscerally thrilling Dance of the Furies and Bizet's fresh and uninhibited Symphony in C.
