Known to many as “The Unconventional Pop Star” and “The Angel of Australia”. Dutch, Australian born soprano Mirusia is surely a star in her own right. With her solo career in full flight, her recent “From the heart tour” in Melbourne at Bunjil Place, Narre Warren, had what one would arguably say the recipe for the perfect afternoon out.
From the moment you walk in, there is already a sense of familiarity & comfort. One might say it's like coming home again. The simple yet sweet stage set up, along with the “Cranbourne Chorale” set the tone for the afternoon of fairytale like moments that one will cherish forever.
If the beautiful diverse array of song arrangements – From the heart, Ave Maria, Memory, Colours of the wind, Within my heart (Highland Cathedral) I could have danced all night, Already Home… Just to name a few doesn’t already warm your heart, then Mirusia’s crystal clear yet warm voice & unique ability to connect with her audience both on a personal (old friend kind of way) & humorous level will be sure to do that for you. And being a girl you can’t help but notice all the gorgeous change of dresses she wore.
It’s always so refreshing to see someone share the spotlight & showcase their chamber orchestra the way Mirusia does & that just goes hand in hand with the type of person she is, the same on/off stage warm, friendly, humble, genuine, down to earth & so unaffected by her fame. And anyone that goes to meet/greet her after the show will see that in an instance.
Yes it’s true one can not help but love Mirusia.
