We are currently working on a programme based on operas with magical themes. This begins with a performance of scenes from a variety of operas and culminates in our production of Hansel and Gretel, planned for 2019/2020
This is an exciting introduction to magical operas, designed to charm audiences and give our singers the opportunity to perform at their best. This will be much more than a concert performance – we’ve woven together a series of scenes from well loved operas in a creative and imaginative way.
The performance will take place on 24 March 2019 at the new Storey’s Field Centre and promises to be an original and exciting evening!
Hansel and Gretel
More than a simple fairytale for children, Humperdinck created a wonderful, grand opera, one of the most popular pieces in opera houses all over the world. Fortunately for us, he also wrote a simpler version, which is perfect for us. It’s full of lovely music and very singable, and includes plenty of challenges for those who want to develop their musical and dramatic ability.
This production will provide opportunities for singers age 11 – 21, as well as a full production team, including stage managers, set builders, costume makers and lighting techinicians.
We’ll be recruiting for this show from Spring 2019 onwards.
