In preparation for our high profile event on 30 April at Leighton House, we invite you to join us behind-the-scenes! Observe a portion of a working rehearsal, with Opera Holloway’s conductor Lewis Gaston and five young singers as they bring to life this UK premiere of a bel canto opera which has no regular performing tradition and has only been resurrected once in the last few years!
See first hand how they overcome decisions and dilemmas that, as performers, they rarely encounter when rehearsing the works of other composers. Armed only with egos, opinions and aesthetic judgements, this is an opportunity to be a fly on the wall as we start with a blank canvas in preparation for our lecture recital performance later in the month.
There will be an informal Q&A session at the end of the session.
- Concert Duration:
- approx. 2 hours (with short interval)
