Only 12 days to go until our first of three Midsummer Music concerts – this one’s going to be at the Civic Hall in Dronfield at 19:30. Ticket orders are already rolling in, and we can’t wait to get out there and entertain the people of Dronfield with highlights of our favourite operas and musicals.
Central to the concert is going to be extracts from our most recent full-length opera performance, which was Carmen by Bizet. We’ll have the terrific Anne Bailey performing the famous Habanera, backed by the whole chorus, singing about the flighty and fickle nature of love – definitely not to be missed.
One of our principals from the performance of Carmen, Rebecca Lambert, will be taking on the role of Dido in the haunting Lament, where she dies of a broken heart after being abandoned by her lover.
Not only will we be hearing opera, but also some favourites from the world of musicals! More love and abandonment from Les Miserables in On My Own and I Dreamed a Dream (sung by yours truly!) and the impassioned Stars, performed by another of our principals from Carmen and other past opera performances, the incomparable Nigel Rothery.
And, as they say, many more besides!
Tickets can be purchased on this very website – or if you can’t make Dronfield, there will be two other similar concerts in Lodge Moor and Swinton within a few weeks.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
