OPERA GALA – LONDON
Wednesday 14th November 2018 - 7:00 pm| £85
“Classy young singers, a world-class repetiteur and slickly staged set of pieces… Whenever Clonter is unearthed from its Northern roots, it rightly receives huge commendation for its work…” Louise Christie, Opera Today 2017.
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 operative 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 those based in the south, Clonter’s Gala will be transferring to the “breath-taking beautiful ballroom”, originally designed by Robert Adam, at the Lansdowne Club on Wednesday 14th November – Now bookable online.
For this year’s Opera Gala, Clonter is delighted to welcome back Marlena Devoe (Soprano), who starred in Clonter’s production of La traviata in 2016. She will be joined by Daniela Sicari and Rhiain Taylor from the Royal Northern College of Music. This year the Opera Gala will be directed by Roxana Haines.
