Spring will soon be on the horizon, and with it heralds the annual Masterclasses, and the subsequent Spring Opera Showcase, which offers a rich variety of semi-staged opera scenes and arias, set into context, to entertain opera novices of all ages and seasoned opera lovers in equal measure.

Rather than a straight gala style show, this event will very much be a showcase in the true sense of the word, displaying the fruits of a week’s work, and extending that theme, it will reveal much of the masterclass process, with a demonstration of what takes place in the rehearsal room, between director, conductor, and répétiteur, as part of the evening’s event. It will however still very much have the feel of a show, and each piece will be set into context by the singers themselves, creating an increased intimacy between singer and the audience.

Whilst a demonstration of what has taken place in the Masterclass will be included in the Spring Opera Showcase, the usual access to the Thursday session (2-3.30pm) will still be on offer. Visitors to the Masterclass are able to follow a performance’s journey from the rehearsal to production, offering a more in-depth view, at an earlier stage in the week, of what goes into the workings behind a performance.

“My enjoyment (of the Spring Opera Showcase) was greatly enhanced by attendance of the Masterclasses in the days before, where we watched the singers being trained into dramatic ensembles by some of the best teachers in the world.”

Clonter’s former Chairman, Patrick Furlong
