The UK/Australia Season is a major new cultural exchange celebrating the diverse and innovative artist communities and cultural sectors of each nation. A collaboration between the British Council and the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, The Season is a vibrant programme spanning theatre, film, visual arts, dance, design, architecture, music, literature, higher education and a public engagement programme.
Designed to strengthen and build cultural connections, the Season theme is “Who Are We Now?” and will reflect on our history, explore our current relationship, and imagine our future together. The Season launched in both countries in September 2021.
The Foundation for Australian and New Zealand Arts (FANZA) in conjunction with the Australasian Law Society is pleased to present FANZA Classica, Real and Right and True- a celebration of Australian, New Zealand and British songs from some of Australia and Britain’s best-loved composers.
Australians Lotte Betts-Dean (mezzo soprano) and Joseph Havlat (pianist/composer) join New Zealand baritone Kieran Rayner for a one-hour programme of fine classical fare in the glorious setting of Christopher Wren’s St Mary-at-Hill church, Lovat Lane EC3R 8EE, near Monument.
The programme is part of the 2021/2022 UK/Australia Season of Culture. Doors open at 5.30pm for a prompt start at 6pm. Tickets for the evening, including drinks, are available through Eventbrite for £25 plus handling fees. Special ticket prices available for young adults and under-25s.
