Cobwebs play Carmen

No, not just the Torreadors song – the whole opera.
How come? Well, seven professional singers from London-based Rogue Opera (click on this link find out how wonderful they are Rogue Opera)- are travelling up to join us at the Wylam non-residential weekend on 24/25 August.

We will work alongside them on the arias, preludes, choruses, interludes and dances, gradually putting together a complete (though slightly shortened) version of Bizet’s masterpiece.

Cobwebs has never done anything remotely like this before and I hope it’s something that will appeal to lots of you. Carmen contains some of the best-know melodies and most sparkling orchestral music in the whole operatic repertoire, but the weekend won’t be entirely devoted to Bizet – each singer will also be performing solo items by other composers so that there will plenty of variety to keep you all entertained.
Details on lunches and other food arrangements will be finalised shortly, but please do enrol so we know you’re coming.

The weekend will be split into 5 sessions as follows:
Saturday morning 10.30-1pm
Saturday afternoon 2 – 4.30pm
Saturday evening 6.30-9pm

Sunday morning 10.30-1pm
Sunday afternoon 2-4.30pm

Participation Fee for Players
