In one of the most eagerly anticipated collaborations of 2019, adored Australian soprano Nicole Car partners with her husband, the internationally acclaimed French-Canadian baritone Etienne Dupuis, and brilliant pianist Jayson Gillham, in a recital of romantic French and Spanish song and opera arias and duets.

Nicole captivated audiences in Opera Australia’s 2018 production of La Traviata, and is now in demand at the world’s greatest opera houses, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera where she and her husband recently starred in Puccini’s La Bohème.
