NOT TOO LATE…OPERA GALA – LONDON
Following thunderous applause on Saturday night, we are eager to share this Operatic and Musical Theatre treat with as many people as possible. It is not too late to book in to come and see this show in London, this Thursday – 16th November. If you are due spoiling either yourself or by someone else, this could perhaps be just the answer.
The opera gala consists of a variety of well loved opera arias, duets, and ensembles, but also an introduction to some pieces never performed at Clonter before, but due to the line up, two Spanish pieces have been included into this year’s programme. Also new to Clonter in the Musical Theatre section of the evening, a lesser performed piece from One touch of Venus by Kurt Weill, who also gets to finish off the evening with a piece from his Lady in the Dark – The Saga of Jenny.
All wittily introduced by the director, Lissa Lorenzo.
For this year’s Opera Gala, Clonter is delighted to welcomed back Mirjam Mesak (Soprano), who starred in the Spring Opera Showcase earlier in the year, and welcomed for the first time Bianca Andrew (Mezzo Soprano), Thomas Humphreys (Baritone), Eduard Mas Bacardit (Tenor) and Lorena Paz Nieto (Soprano).
This year’s gala is generously sponsored by WH Ireland. Robert Race, Head of Wealth Management at WHIreland in Manchester said: “The contribution of organisations like Clonter to the culture of this country is often overlooked and we and our clients are very much looking forward to another intimate and memorable evening this year.”
