The Silver Lake - A Director's Note

Tuesday 24 September 2019

From the Autumn 2019 season programme

Director Seb Harcombe and Soprano Sky Ingram on their involvement in English Touring Opera’s upcoming production of Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas, their careers, and their advice for budding artists.

As a part of our Autumn 2018 touring season, we'll be presenting the music of Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa in our Triple Bill, under the title 'I will not speak'.

This week, I’ve been catching up with the cast and director of this year’s opera for audiences with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). This Is My Bed is being taken to Luxembourg to be performed in the Philharmonie theatre hall. This follows an extremely successful tour of the UK from March 2018 to June 2018 in more than 12 different schools.

The world of classical music is so vast it can often be difficult to know where to start if you are new to the genre. From baroque, to film music, to opera, and then to romantic music, it can be overwhelming for novices to join in on the fun.
