Bullfighters, gypsies, femmes fatales, cigarette factory workers, soldiers, medieval mastersingers, Egyptian priests, members of Parisian high society and London low life – all are represented in this concert performance of overtures, arias, choruses and longer sequences. The featured operas are Mozart’s The Magic Flute, The Rake’s Progress by Stravinsky, Verdi’s La Traviata, Bizet’s Carmen, and Die Meistersinger by Wagner.

Mark Forkgen’s choice of excerpts will provide a feast of stirring music to enthral newcomers and experienced fans alike. Among the well-loved items will be the bird-catcher Papageno’s aria from The Magic Flute, the drinking song from La Traviata, the Habanera and Toreador Song from Carmen and the Prelude to Act One and grand Finale from Die Meistersinger. An evening not to be missed.
