Bruno de Sá

Soprano

With his exceptionally powerful and at the same time gentle voice, the young soprano is considered one of the best up-and-coming artists of our time. The Brazilian-born singer is signed as an exclusive artist with Warner Classics and has already thrilled audiences in Austria at the Theater an der Wien.

Styriarte Festspiel-Orchester

Orchestra

Styriarte's orchestral "Supergroup" is made up of changing international star guests and musicians from the first-class fund of the Recreation orchestra, depending on need and occasion. The orchestra's tuning and choice of instruments follow the historical requirements of the works performed.

Michael Hofstetter

Conductor

The Munich-born conductor, born in 1961, has been a very close friend of Styriarte since his highly acclaimed work as chief conductor of the Recreation Orchestra (2012 - 2016). His excellence in the historical practice of baroque and classical music as well as his inspiring enthusiasm on the podium are in demand on the world's great concert and opera stages.

Content

gender fluidity in Baroque opera

Brazilian Bruno de Sá’s soprano voice effortlessly fills even large theatres. With his unbelievably high and radiant voice, he masters Bellini bel canto as well as Handel arias and has proved that he is as brilliant in female roles as he recently was at the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival. At the Helmut List Halle we find him as Caesar and Cleopatra – gender fluidity in Baroque opera, conducted with aplomb by Michael Hofstetter and his Festival Orchestra.
