ETO returns to Lincoln for a recital of operatic favourites and Russian songs
2nd March 2012
Following last autumn’s festival of Baroque music, English Touring Opera returns to St Nicholas Church in Lincoln on Tuesday 13th March with a recital of 18th- and 19th century operatic favourites and Russian songs.
ETO soloists Lorna Bridge (soprano), Helen Johnson (mezzo soprano), and Adam Tunnicliffe (tenor) will perform music from Cosi fan tutte (Mozart), La traviata and Il trovatore (Verdi), and Madama Butterfly (Puccini), accompanied by Jonathan Gooing (piano) and by the Lincoln Minster School Chamber Choir.
The singers will also perform music from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, which English Touring Opera is performing across the UK as part of its 2012 spring tour. The Lincoln Minster School Chamber Choir will accompany ETO’s soloists for the famous Peasants’ Chorus from Eugene Onegin.
Aric Prentice, Director of Music at the Minster School and at Lincoln Cathedral, said: “The Lincoln Minster School Chamber Choir is delighted to have been invited to participate once again in a performance with ETO, after singing in a concert of Bach cantatas with them last October. What a tremendous opportunity for our young singers!”
The recital starts at 7.30pm on Tuesday 13th March; tickets are £7.50 on the door, and are free for children up to 18 years old. Tickets can be reserved by calling ETO on 020 7833 2555 or by signing up online here (simply add your name and the number of tickets you would like to reserve).
