Tuesday 4th June 18:30-20:30
Venue: Clementi House
Love of the Orient: Opera Comique – Lewis Gaston (conductor) and Opera Prelude’s young artists
Join us for a glass of champagne in the lovely garden of Clementi House* for this evening’s lecture recital when we look at how classic love stories are given a twist by two famous opera composers; Bizet and Saint-Saëns. Here familiar love stories are given an unfamiliar backdrop in these two exotic settings of heartbreak and ultimate happiness in operas commissioned for the French Opera Comique.
