Louth Choral Society 'A Night at the Opera'

International Opera Stars to join Louth Choral Society presenting – ‘A Night at the Opera’
St James’s Church, Louth, 18th September, 2022 7.30pm.

Louth Choral Society’s concert ‘A Night at the Opera ‘ promises to be an evening all lovers of opera will not wish to miss. The Choir is delighted to welcome two international opera stars for an evening of popular arias and choruses.

It is a particular honor to welcome Christopher Maltman (Baritone) back to Louth St James ‘s Church where his musical career began as a chorister under the musical direction of Peter Burness. Chris was born in Cleethorpes and grew up mostly in Lincolnshire, attending King Edward VI Grammar and Cordeau High Schools in Louth, before studying at the Royal Academy of Music. He is a favorite soloist at the Royal Opera House in London and frequently appears at the Metropolitan Opera in New York amongst many other international opera houses. His next performance at the Royal Opera House in London will be Otello from the 12th July. However, before then you can catch “one of the leading baritones of his generation” as described by OperaWire, in St James’s Church, Louth on Sunday 3rd July at 7.30 pm. Chris will be accompanied on piano by his wife, Audrey Saint-Gil, a renowned French conductor and composer.

Clare Presland (Mezzo Soprano) is described by The Times as “mesmerising with an intensity that almost sears the flesh”. Clare is a former winner of the Chilcott Award and has firmly established herself on the international operatic and concert platforms.

The performance will be conducted by Allan Smith, Musical Director to Louth Choral Society and accompanied on piano by David Parker, Assistant Musical Director.
Performance commences at 7.30pm. Tickets for this dazzling concert will be available mid August from www.ticketsource.co.uk/louthchoral or from Beaumont’s, Bridge Street, Louth. Reserved center aisle tickets £15, unaccompanied 18s £8. Unreserved side aisles seats £10, under 18 free.
