Inessa Galante is one of the world’s best loved sopranos.

Long established as prima donna assoluta of Latvian opera, her international career only became possible when the iron curtain fell, leading to engagements by other major opera houses in Europe and the USA.

She shot to international fame in 1995 with her recording of Ave Maria attributed to 16th century composer Giulio Caccini, which featured on her best-selling “Debut” album.

This was the first time this haunting version of the Ave Maria had been heard by modern day audiences and it became a worldwide hit.

Since then her extraordinary beauty of tone and captivating stage presence have made her one of the most sought after sopranos of her generation.

Inessa Galante will perform with acclaimed pianist Roland Peelman in Melbourne Recital Centre on the 23rd of November and City Recital Hall, Sydney on the 26th of November.
