Closing last night in Sydney is Pinchgut Opera’s acclaimed production of Vivaldi’s Juditha Triumphans. (http://http://www.pinchgutopera.com.au/productions/?IntCatId=3&IntContId=126) . With three of the lead roles being played by Western Australian singers Sara Macliver, Fiona Campbell and Renae Martin, the production is another testament to the fact that WA produces more than its fair share of outstanding singers. Ex-pat singers returning for the Christmas break are Lisa Harper-Brown (currently based in Germany) and Aldo Di Toro (Italy) Both will be presenting concerts as well as enjoying a bit of R & R, WA style. Over the years, these singers have all used the music collection at the State Library and can attest to its uniqueness and usefulness.
