The Ultimate Baroque Experience HitchinListed on April 15, 2016 in Blogs!
Each year Benslow Music offers a very special course – the Baroque Opera.
The aim of the course is to produce a fully-staged public performance of the chosen work in just 5 days! The chorus and orchestra consist of fee-paying course members. The soloists are auditioned – many coming from the top conservatoires – with successful applicants being awarded bursaries to attend. The work for 2016 is John Blow’s Venus and Adonis which will be performed to the public on Saturday 9 April.
For our 2016 production we are offering something a bit different. Whilst you have the option of attending the 12noon matinee or the 7.30pm evening performance only – those who are interested in The Ultimate Baroque Experience can arrive for a 5.30pm concert performance of Purcell’s Welcome to all the Pleasures, followed by a pre-opera dinner which is then followed by the evening performance of Venus and Adonis.
Tickets are still available, £12 for the opera-only performances, or £30 for The Ultimate Baroque Experience – to book please call our box office on 01462 459446
