On the occasion of the 150th Anniversary of Gioachino Rossini’s death, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Sidney is pleased to host soprano Jessica Pratt, one of ROF's most beloved singers, who will hold an informal conversation with mezzosoprano Deborah Humble dedicated to the great Italian composer.

During the evening, organized with the collaboration of ROF and Opera Australia, Jessica Pratt will talk briefly about Italian opera in general and about her experience as an opera singer in Italy. She will also provide the commentary to some brief excerpts of Rossini’s operas which will be screened during the evening.
