Opera Unwrapped 2

Opera

Unwrapped for Christmas

Sunday 10th December

7.00pm

Join Into Opera and some of the UK’s finest singers at The Assembly House Norwich for an evening of music, conversation, canapés and bubbly – the perfect way to enjoy an evening in the run up to Christmas with friends and loved ones.

 

This intimate concert will be a unique opportunity to enjoy music from a number of singers including internationally acclaimed Mezzo-Soprano, Yvonne Howard. It will be an opportunity to find out what got these successful singers into opera and to hear some of their favourite repertoire from composers including Puccini, Mozart and Bizet.

 

This concert is taking place to raise money for ‘A King’s Ransom’ the children’s opera and education project, which Into Opera are running in Norfolk primary schools. Their project champions the importance of all children having access to the arts and a creative education. It culminates in the professional world premiere of a new opera written for children to sing by one of the UK’s most inspirational classical composers, Patrick Hawes in February 2018 at OPEN Norwich. Audiences attending Opera Unwrapped for Christmas will be the first to hear a preview of this opera, which will be introduced on the night, by the composer.
