From the moment Yukie Sato enters Handel’s House, you’ll feel the force of her gravity. It might be the house that Handel built, but it is this glowing soprano who makes it her own.

The purity of her voice is set to deliver a Handel experience with uncompromising clarity, beckoning her audiences to surrender to the siren as she holds us in the palm of her hand, cracks open our hearts, and lovingly reassembles them piece by piece.

Making her highly anticipated Australian debut, Japan’s Yukie Sato is the songbird who refuses to be defined or caged. Be transfixed as the international soprano takes flight through Handel’s most cherished arias. Revel in the Japanese-born, Swiss-educated diva’s technical and innate musicality and natural charisma perfectly befitting of Handel’s distinctly Germanic approach to Italian style.

A vocal icon that cannot be dulled, prepare for Sato to weave a vivid tapestry that will engulf and envelope you entirely. That is her power, wielded like a burning sword. In a rare opportunity to experience the soprano outside of Japan, it’s your choice to shy from her brightness or surrender to her flame as she graces us for this brief but epic moment in time, and then she is gone. Catch her while you can!
