About the event
Don't miss the Australian premiere of this ground-breaking new piece by award-winning composer Wally Gunn and librettist Maria Zajkowski.
Rendered in stunning six-part vocal harmony, I heart Artermis is a concert-length queer reimagining of Greek mythology; goddesses Athena and Artemis meet, fall in love, and live a brief eternity of passion. But their paradise can't last; on earth, men wage war, indulge their lusts, and exploit the land. The lovers must unite to defend what cannot defend itself.
I heart Artemis is a story about a mythological love and a very real crisis, which asks the most pressing questions about humanity's future.
Let the crystaline voices of the Consort of Melbourne wash over you in the rich surrounds of Melbourne Recital Centre's Elisabeth Murdoch Hall and join us for an odyssey of love, passion and despair.
