UWA Choral Society performs Puccini and Verdi
Two of the opera world’s most beloved composers come together for a lively performance including excerpts from Verdi’s “Four Sacred Pieces” and Puccini’s “Messa di Gloria”

Composed over eight years during the twilight of Verdi’s life “Four Sacred Pieces” is the final expression of his ambiguous feelings towards religion “messa di Gloria” was originally intended as a farewell to Puccini’s association with sacred music. Colourful and unashamedly operatic in style, it is significantly influenced by Puccini’s predecessor, Verdi. 

Joined by leading West Australian soloists under the direction of conductor Christopher van Tuinen, this distinctly Italian flavoured performance by the UWA Choral Society is not to be missed. 

·         Sunday 23 September 2.30pm, St Patrick’s Basilica, Fremantle. Tickets $20 – $45 from
