State Opera is proud to present the world’s pre-eminent Baroque ensemble, Les Arts Florissants, in Adelaide for the first time in over 25 years. William Christie’s Jardin des Voix (Garden of Voices) needs no introduction: it has become renowned world-over as an annual showcase of the brightest new stars of early music. It has launched the careers of Sonya Yoncheva, Lea Desandre, Marc Mauillon and Christophe Dumaux to name a few. As part of their 40th birthday celebrations and world tour, Les Arts Florissants presents Mozart’s opera La Finta Giardiniera, featuring the 2019 artists of le Jardin des Voix.
