Opera Holloway’s upcoming performance at the Community Centre has proved so popular the event is now sold out!
A summer evening of opera – a hilarious adaptation of Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte – is planned for Sunday, 3 September, 7.30pm at Lingfield and Dormansland Community Centre.
Set during the Second World War, sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella appear as Land Girls forced to watch their boyfriends go off to war earlier than expected. Through trickery and plenty of comical disguises, their sweethearts seek to find out how faithful the two girls really are.
Fiona Hamilton, of Opera Prelude, said: “With sublime music by Mozart and an astonishingly talented cast performing with string quartet and piano accompaniment, this promises to be a captivating show.”
Directed by Fiona Williams and conducted by Lewis Gaston, the production stars soprano Callie Gaston as Fiordiligi, mezzo-soprano Sophie Dicks as Dorabella, baritone Jevan McAuley as Guglielmo, tenor Tom Morss as Ferrando, soprano Lorena Paz Nieto as Despina, and baritone Przemyslaw Baranek as Don Alfonso, accompanied by Laurie O’Brien on piano.
A spokesman for Opera Holloway, which will be touring Così Fan Tutte throughout September, said: “Once again our cast for this year’s touring production consists of an exceptionally talented selection of younger singers and we’re thrilled to have director Fiona Williams working with us again. Fiona’s productions have been enormously popular with our audiences in previous years and we look forward to her adaptation of Mozart’s work this year.”
The performance will be accompanied by English subtitles.
Supported by Alex Jones Funeral Directors.
