Opera Anywhere: Opera's Heroines
Part of the Pinner Music Festival, the first half of this ‘night at the opera’ comprises a marvellous mix of arias and ensembles for young female voices. The fantastic selection of pieces include works by Mozart (Cosi fan tutte), Berlioz (Beatrice & Benedict), Bizet (Carmen), Verdi (the witches’ scene from Macbeth) & Puccini (Gianni Schicchi, Tosca), Matchmaker, Matchmaker (from Fiddler on the Roof) by Davies & Miller, as well as medleys from The Sound of Music and of Vera Lynn favourites by Olivia Bell.
In the second part, savour Opera Anywhere’s production of Puccini’s very moving one-act opera Sister Angelica. Set in the Ireland of the 1950s in a rural convent, and with a socio-political background, it is a moving story of love and faith, with the ‘disgraced’ Angelica the only character really deserving of redemption. Puccini uses all his typical compositional skills to draw on our emotions, in the very touching music he wrote to match the drama.
