Sinclair’s Gully, South Australia’s leading ecotourism venue, brings you a unique outdoor musical experience. Featuring coloratura soprano Kathryn Snape, set against a back drop of majestic candlebark gums, the evening promises to showcase some of your favourite classical musical pieces in one of Adelaide’s most spectacular natural settings.
Co-owner of Sinclair’s Gully Sean Delaney explains “The idea for this show came about after listening to Kathryn at a Fringe Performance. The audience reaction to her was amazing. A spontaneous, honest and emotional outpouring of appreciation and recognition of her talent. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised as Kathryn is classically trained and has been performing since she was 5.”
Sean went on to say “It was then we saw the opportunity to better link the power of Kathryn’s performance with the majestic beauty of Sinclair’s Gully. The ancient candlebarks not only form a beautiful back drop, but also add to the presence and drama of the performance allowing the listener to immerse themselves in the music.”
After sell out performances last Easter and at this years Fringe, Kathryn returns for performances at Sinclair’s Gully on Good Friday and Easter Saturday.
The performance includes a collection of heartfelt pieces, such as “Music of the Night”, “Memory” and “Nessun Dorma”, as well as a number of new songs.
Set against the haunting backdrop of the towering candlebark gums, this is a truly special and inspirational performance, just breathtaking.
A night to immerse yourself in the moment, as the power of the performance melds with the beauty of the setting to create a memorable experience. Don’t miss out.
