LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO…
As we wave good bye to the lovely Colum Sands, accompanied by Adrianne Wininsky on the cello, (for review please visit Weekend Folk News), Clonter turns it’s attention to this year’s Opera Gala – one of Clonter’s most popular annual events.
The opera gala consists of a variety of well loved opera arias, duets, and ensembles, followed by some musical theatre classics, in a well established operatic prelude to Christmas, and is ideal for anyone who has not been to an opera before, but would like to dip their toe in the water, before committing to a full blown one. Each item is set into context by the director, so no prior knowledge necessary
For this year’s Opera Gala, Clonter is delighted to welcome back Mirjam Mesak, who starred in the Spring Opera Showcase earlier in the year, and to welcome for the first time Bianca Andrew (Mezzo Soprano), Thomas Humphreys (Baritone), Eduard Mas Bacardit (Tenor), and Lorena Paz Nieto (Soprano), directed by Lissa Lorenzo. https://www.clonter.org/event/opera-gala-2/
For those based in the south, Clonter’s Gala will be transferring to the elegant 18th Century ballroom, originally designed by Robert Adam, at the Lansdowne Club on Thursday 16th November. Book through the Box Office only. For more info visit https://www.clonter.org/event/opera-gala-london/
