LA BOHEME - Puccini
Midland Opera will be performing La Bohème, in Italian, in a semi staged production at Tudor Grange Academy, Dingle Lane, Solihull B91 3PD on December 12th 2015 at 7pm.
A number of Academy students will join the chorus, and the Art Department will assist with scenery.
Tickets are £10 or £5 for students and children.
This is one of the world’s favourite operas - romantic, heartrending, yet full of energy and music which transports the listener.
So, take this opportunity to forget the Christmas rush and enter our world of music and magic!
THE THIEVING MAGPIE - Rossini
The Crescent Theatre, Sheepcote Street,
Birmingham B16 8AE
Christopher Morley said of our latest production.. 'Midland Opera bring the world's important operas right into the heart of Birmingham,
The Thieving Magpie had some wonderful moments of musical delivery when soloists took flight. As Ninetta, the falsely-accused servant-girl, Abigail Kelly was simply brilliant. Robert Tilson was her attractive fiance Gianetto, Devon Harrison was engaging as his father, and Wendy Silvester placed her notes well as his mother, Lucia.
Roger Hanke scored a comedic triumph in dual roles as pedlar and prison warder, with the MO chorus projecting singing of great linear and harmonic clarity.
And the wonderful kleptomaniac magpie, deftly manipulated by Deborah Johnson, did a tremendous ventriloquist's job, croaking and growling away.'
