  • MEET THE OPERA WORLDMONDAY, 10 DECEMBER

    Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) Mozart  Insight evening – Talk and recital

    Featuring rising star soprano Sky Ingram and ENO repetiteur Richard Peirson

    6.30pm for 7pm start
    The Loft

     

    Mozart’sLe Nozze is a jolly romp, a romantic comedy and socially subversive drama. It explores the nature of the relationships between masters/mistresses and their servants.

     

    There is a young man (played by a female singer in a ‘trouser role’) in love with a married countess, a lascivious aristocrat hoping to exert his ‘droit de seigneur’ over his wife’s beautiful maid in advance of her wedding to his manservant.

     

    Richard and Sky will talk about Mozart’s exquisite music and perform some highlights from the opera. This is sure to be an entertaining and illuminating evening punctuated with some gorgeous singing.

     

    Talk and performance plus dinner in The Drawing Room before the event £45
    Talk and performance only £25.
