Dame Kiri Te Kanawa - Burnie
Ten Days on the Island presents Dame Kiri Te Kanawa in Recital
Terence Dennis - Piano
Combine the voice with a deep musical intelligence ... add an adventurous choice of repertoire and a generous stage presence and you end up with a recital that nears perfection.
Dame Kiri Te Kanawa’s glorious soprano voice soars beyond the borders and culture of her native New Zealand. Like Sutherland, Melba and Callas her formidable vocal talents are already scored in world musical history.
Dame Kiri’s extraordinary appearance will be a memorable opportunity to hear why she is regarded as one of the world’s foremost operatic singers applauded by audiences of every generation. Accompanied by her pianist Terence Dennis she’ll perform a rich programme of classic and contemporary highlights from her famed repertoire.
Created a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1982 Dame Kiri’s career spans 40 years in the major operatic houses and concert halls in the United Kingdom, North America and Europe and, according to a recent concert review, “her voice is as remarkable as ever”.
This intimate evening with a singer of historic status will enchant not only those familiar with her music but anyone moved by song.
