The Summer Performance of the Jette Parker Young Artists on the main stage has made a name for itself as an important event at which to spot future stars in a rich and enjoyable showcase of musical and dramatic styles. Singers, conductors, stage director and répétiteur join to present a great afternoon of opera which this year takes its inspiration from the history, glamour and mystery of Venice.
This year’s matinee includes musical extracts from comic to tragic. The first part features scenes from Rossini’s lesser-known works Signor Bruschino and Bianca e Falliero as well as the Act 1 conclusion of Otello. In the second half, sinister, romantic and lugubrious evocations of this most atmospheric of cities come from Donizetti, Offenbach and Britten. The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House accompanies throughout in a fascinating programme given by young and extraordinary talent.
Sung in English, Italian and French with English Surtitles
