Voice Unwrapped

PhD Candidate Sarah Mann (soprano) and Ella Luhtasaari (piano) present a fascinating concert exploring the emotional language of opera

What is the emotional language of opera? Those princesses, shepherds, spinsters and sirens have been pressing our sob, scream, laugh and sigh buttons in songs and arias for centuries. Join Sarah and Ella, who through collaboration, performance and brain research luxuriate in and deconstruct these thrills and chills. Enjoy the journey!

Featuring special guests Milan Koloundjia (clarinet), Alira Prideaux (soprano) and Sitiveni Talei (baritone).

“a hauntingly beautiful voice… fresh, sunny and warm, like the perfect spring day” with “superb accompanying by Luhtasaari” – Canberra CityNews, November 2022
