Opera in Oborne 2021 goes ahead!
Dates confirmed 6th - 8th August
Opera in Oborne 2021
We are delighted to be able to offer...
A Mozart Double Bill
Friday 6th and Saturday 7th August 2021, 8.00 pm
The Impresario is a short, comic opera that focuses on the progress of two actresses as they audition for a position in a theatre company. It is regarded as "a parody on the vanity of singers". Brought up-to-date and set in Oborne.
Mozart's unfinished Opera, The Goose of Cairo is a little like Rapunzel, only more fantastical. A daughter locked up by her father, a fiancé, a lover a tower and a mechanical goose!
The Gala Concert
(With a difference)
Sunday 8th August, 3 pm.
How Opera in Oborne started, the ever-popular gala concert.
Previous years have included favourites such as the Toreador Song, La donna e mobile and Maria from West Side Story alongside some lesser known, but beautiful arias. The perfect way to introduce opera to a wider audience.
There is one big change this year though, it will be in the playing field, directly opposite the church. After all of the changes of the last year, it seemed only right that we made some changes to accommodate those who might be more comfortable outside. The set will be the pavillion, the backdrop is the village; bring your picnic blankets and camp chairs. We will bring the strawberries, Pimms and the glorious music.
