Opera Unwrapped is a classical concert series curated by the imaginative and innovative opera company, Into Opera. Singers perform and ‘unwrap’ music for audiences, sharing personal stories which truly bring the art form to life. Prepare for laughter, conversation and of course… staggeringly beautiful music.
Book your tickets and look forward to an atmospheric evening at St Andrews Hall, for one of the final concerts in this historic venue before it closes its doors due to its major refurbishment work commences in the new year.
Join Into Opera and Britten Sinfonia for this special celebration and experience music from Puccini’s La boheme, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel and Verdi’s La Traviata, as well as festive favourites from films including The Snowman and Meet me in St Louis …and we’ll be including a number of Christmas classics too!
This is a one-off concert, created especially for the audiences who join us on Friday 15th December. We guarantee that this unique event will bring that extra sparkle into your celebrations this Christmas.
Suitable for all ages.
Soloist announcement coming soon…
Concert ends at approximately: 9:50pm (there will be a 25 minute interval)
Britten Sinfonia is an orchestra with a difference. Rather than being led by a principal conductor, it’s made up of outstanding individual musicians who come together as equals and make the important artistic decisions themselves, collectively and democratically. The results are electrifying. Rooted in the East of England, where it is the only professional orchestra working throughout the region, Britten Sinfonia also has a national and international reputation as one of the best ensembles playing today.
“Britten Sinfonia ought to enjoy national treasure status”
