Come Sing and Play: Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell
Following on from our successful residential Opera Summer School in Touffailles, France last August we will be running a rehearse and performance in a day event as part of the Wycombe festival. Participants are invited to come and sing in the chorus or play in the orchestra alongside professional players from London Orchestras. Young and talented local singers who are currently at Music College or in sixth form will perform in the lead roles. Marisa will direct the singers and chorus whilst Dan will conduct the orchestra with Stage Direction by Anthony Lewis.
