Opera Queensland is delighted to collaborate with Musica Viva to bring you the renowned English vocal ensemble I Fagiolini (pronounced Ee far-joe-LEE-nee – ‘the little beans’) for their debut national tour. The ensemble, directed by Robert Hollingworth, will perform a characteristic mix of old and new, tossing early madrigals in with spectacular new works to create a delicious musical salad! Lovers of great singing and choral music will enjoy making the acquaintance of this superb group performing repertoire from Victoria and Monteverdi through to Poulenc and a world premiere by Andrew Schultz especially commissioned for I Fagiolini.
“An irrepressible force in the early music world, bringing bags of style, energy and dramatic excitement to everything they touch.” International Record Review
