Compassion – EVENT POSTPONED
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Performances postponed – Compassion, Empire Theatres 1 April 2020 and QPAC 2 April 2020.
Following Federal Government’s ban on non-essential gathering, and considering the safety of all, this performance will no longer be going ahead.
Here are the essential details:
– We will be working with Lior, QPAC and Empire Theatres to reschedule this performance and will provide an update in the coming weeks.
– For now, ticket-holders don’t need to do anything. Current tickets will be valid for the re-scheduled concert.
– Once the new dates are available, if you’re unable to make the rescheduled performance, we would be pleased to action a refund or you may wish to consider this a gift to Camerata. We would be most grateful.

Beethoven’s Grand Fugue has been termed “a great artistic testament to the human capacity for meaning” and provides a gripping Season 2020 opening work. Phillip Glass’s Echorus commemorates the inspiring humanity of the great violinist, Yehudi Menuhin, with a text by Alan Ginsberg read by acclaimed local actor, Barbara Lowing. You will be transported to a chapel where macho bullfighters pray for their lives ahead of their encounters in the Madrid arena, a scene that inspired Turina to write his sensual The Bullfighter’s Prayer. Following interval, we welcome a special guest artist, leading Australian singer/songwriter Lior, whose beautiful voice joins in music written together with Nigel Westlake in Compassion – a song cycle with words that aim to unite Islam and Judaism into a remarkable and authentic celebration of compassion. Along with our signature Wild Card Mystery Guest expect a night of deep feeling and inspiration!
