T wo years ago in April, I was in Brisbane working with Erin Helyard for the first time, and he said if I wanted to do something, then Pinchgut Opera would love to have me. I said immediately that Hasse was my preference. I always say Hasse, even knowing that most audiences don’t know the composer so it’s very difficult for a venue to program him.
