    Opera Night

    Bernard brings us to the opera in Lausanne, Switzerland for Rossini's much loved opera buffa The Barber of Seville. With Edgardo Rocha, Giorgio Caoduro and Annalisa Stroppa.

    Saturday October 10th
    Bernard Clarke brings us to this year’s Salzburg Festival for a performance of Jules Massenet’s Werther starring Piotr Beczala in the leading role and Angela Gheorghiu as Charlotte. Alejo Perex conducts the Salzburg Festival Children’s Chorus and the Mozarteum Orchestra.

    Saturday October 17th 
    As the 2015 Wexford Festival Opera approaches, Bernard Clarke presents another opportunity to hear Salomé by Antoine Marriotte , recorded at last year’s festival. 
    Composed by the French sailor-turned-composer Antoine Mariotte (1875-1944), Salomé is based on Oscar Wilde's 1891 play of the same name. Mariotte followed closely Wilde's French text, portraying the emotional extremes, passions and secret terrors of Hérode.
    David Angus conducts the Wexford Festival Orchestra and cast including Na'ama Goldman (Salomé), Nora Sourouzian (Hérodias) and Scott Wilde (Hérode)

    Saturday 24th October

    Bernard Clarke presents Don Bucefalo by Antonio Cagnoni, recorded at the Wexford Festival Opera 2014. Written in 1847 as a graduation work by Antonio Cagnoni (1828-1896), a student at the Milan Conservatory, Don Bucefalo was an immediate success. It was performed in several opera houses in Italy and abroad, winning critical and popular acclaim wherever it was staged. Sergio Alapont conducts this evening's performance starring Filippo Fontana as Don Bucefalo, Marie-Ève Munger as Rosa and Matthew Newlin as Il Conte di Belprato.
