After their hugely acclaimed performance of Madama Butterfly, Orchestra dell’Arte are returning to St George’s Hall on Monday 16 October with a new evening concert series in the Concert Room.
Forget the rush home from work but relax and have a leisurely drink and a sandwich then stroll down to St George’s where the Orchestra dell’Arte will transport you to another dimension with their new series of Soirées Musicales.
Relax in comfortable surroundings whilst conductor Edward Peak tells you about the music and hidden stories of musical life. Make new friends, bring your colleagues along and chat with the orchestra members.
Starting at 7.30pm we begin, rather appropriately, with the sparkling suite of Rossini’s music known as Soirées Musicales, from which the series title is derived.
Tenor Nick Hardy (Pinkerton in Butterfly) is joining us straight from the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and will lull us into a fully relaxed state with some of the best-known Neapolitan songs – think Pavarotti and Addio.
Sir Arthur Sullivan’s only symphony, known as The Irish, will be the second part of this concert. It is bubbling over with Sullivan’s trademark warmth and melody along with subtle hints of his family’s Irish origins.
Come to this event and prepare to be relaxed, amazed and thrilled. An evening not to be missed.
Tickets are £17.50 from www.eventbrite.co.uk (search Orchestra dell’Arte).
