A duo recital featuring decorated University of Melbourne alum and now London-based mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean with pianist Stewart Kelly. Reigniting a partnership that is more than a decade long, Ms Betts-Dean and Mr Kelly return to the Conservatorium to present a collection of charming and spectacular French songs by the six composers who formed the influential collective known as Les Six in the early twentieth century.
Lotte and Stewart first performed together in 2012 when Lotte was a student at the Conservatorium. Both artists share a love of song repertoire and have worked extensively together over the past ten years. Lotte’s impressive London-based career is a testament to the skills she cultivated at the Conservatorium and we look forward to her return.
