Peerless Queen, fearsome leader, and amorous lover – Cleopatra is depicted throughout history as a woman possessing legendary intelligence and enviable beauty. The Queen of the Nile features showpiece Baroque arias by Handel inspired by the enigmatic Egyptian monarch, alongside music by his contemporaries that will surprise and delight. Audiences will be introduced to rising star Sofia Troncoso, in collaboration with Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra for the very first time.

Performing without a conductor, Camerata celebrates an environment where all musicians take full ownership of their artform in the spirit of chamber music. They share the stage with international soprano Sofia Troncoso, who’s gaining praise from critics world-wide for her sweet timbre and exceptional acting abilities. Reconnect with live music, the arts, and the Musica Viva community, in the company of sublime arias from Handel and a collection of German and Italian Baroque delights.
