Royal Conservatory | Karina Gauvin with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra

November 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$40
Soprano Karina Gauvin

One of the world’s reigning sopranos in Baroque and Classical repertoire, Karina Gauvin, and Vancouver’s exciting and innovative specialists in performing “early music for modern ears,” bring you a concert entitled “Russian White Nights: Opera arias from 18th century St. Petersburg.”

At the turn of the 18th century, Peter the Great began to drag Russia, often kicking and screaming, toward the rest of Europe. His new capital, St. Petersburg, was to be a window to the West, and to that end, Peter imported Germans, Czechs, Italians, and other nationalities in his quest to modernize his native land. He and his successors, especially Anna Ivanovna, Elizabeth, and Catherine the Great, saw the opera house as an opportunity to show off their cultural wealth as a modern European nation.

“Karina Gauvin has proved herself one of the most delightful of Baroque sopranos. Her pellucid tone is now flecked with deeper, richer colourings, and precise, nimble coloratura.” (Gramophone)
