Celebrate the season with Pinchgut

Pinchgut Opera makes its much-anticipated return to the stage this December.

One of Charpentier’s most joyous works, Messe de Minuit was written in 1694 for midnight mass on Christmas Eve. Based on eleven traditional French carols, the music dances with pure delight.

In a first for Australian audiences, these performances will feature the beautiful sound of the musette, the small baroque bagpipes traditionally heard at Christmas time in France, played by virtuoso Simon Rickard.

We invite you to celebrate the season with us and with the enchanting music of the French baroque.

Digital Concert Pass

Messe de Minuit will also be available as a digital concert via Pinchgut At Home. Our professionally filmed and recorded performance at City Recital Hall will be available for you to watch at home on your computer, tablet or smartphone: the next best thing to being there in person.
