Production news

In view of continuing uncertainty about when it may be possible to restart rehearsing and performing operas which include a full chorus we are further postponing our production of Acis + Galatea. We plan to reschedule the tour performances in May/ June 2022.

We continue planning for our next major production, and hope that a tour will prove possible in November/ December 2021. Further details will be posted  here in due course.

Because we are a chorus based company we shall not be be planning small scale performances with one or two soloists and no chorus!

We congratulate our Music Director Toby Purser on his appointment to the newly created post of Head of Conducting at the Royal College of Music.
