About the event
Jane Sheldon (soprano)
“a stunning performance” – Washington Post
Best known for her original rendition of Kats-Chernin’s Eliza Aria, Jane has developed an international reputation for specialised contemporary opera and art music. On this occasion, Jane comes to Canberra performing songs from her upcoming album, part of a growing body of work based on the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke. Her 2022 album, I am a tree, I am a mouth was listed in the New Yorker’s Notable Performances and Recordings of 2022. The new works are inspired by Rilke’s Sonnets to Orpheus and will be contrasted with other settings of Rilke and poets who have found personal expression via the Orpheus myth.
