We are thrilled to announce our cast for our semi-staged concert production of Hugh the Drover, coming up this January!
There is still plenty of room in our chorus – Vaughan Williams has written a lot of lively music in this opera for a chorus of gossips, troublemakers, market-goers, soldiers, outraged villagers and ne’er-do-wells, so if you would like to take part in the chorus, please do come along to join us at rehearsals, which are on Wednesday evenings (7:00pm – 9:30pm) and Sunday afternoons (2:00pm – 5:00pm) at Holy Trinity Church, Prince Consort Road, Kensington SW7 2BA, starting this Wednesday, 2 November.
Performances will take place on Thursday 19, Friday 20 and Saturday 21 January 2023 at 7.30pm at Holy Trinity Church.
(Please note this is a change from our originally-advertised dates.)
