Following her magnificent performances in our ‘Champagne Classics’ concert last January, we are thrilled to welcome back soprano Bibi Heal, who will charm us with operatic arias by Mozart and light-operetta composers Zeller and Kalman. The evening opens with Mozart’s fizzing overture, ‘The Marriage of Figaro’ and there is colourful and tuneful Incidental Music from Mendelssohn’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
After the interval it is party time, with Suppe’s ‘Light Cavalry Overture’ and much fun from Johann Strauss - the famous ‘Blue Danube Waltz’, ‘Tales from the Vienna Woods’ and light-hearted romps such as the ‘Hunting’ and ‘Champagne’ polkas.
Do join us to celebrate the New Year in traditional and high-spirited fashion!
Artists: Soprano Bibi Heal, Conductor Jonathan Willcocks
