For one night, and one night only… Durham Opera Ensemble presents ‘Opera of Ages’. Journey through a timeline of famous opera scenes like you have never seen them before. The show will feature selected scenes dating back to the work of Monteverdi through to the contemporary work of Jonathan Dove… and among this, you may recognize a piece or two by famous rock legends! Our event will take place in the grand setting of Castle Great Hall, it promises to be a night of fantastic music alongside bright lights, wacky hair and tight trousers! Rock on!
The Ensemble has set themselves a challenge this term by colliding two very contrasting genres. As always the student-led society will present Opera favorites accompanied by student Orchestral players from the Universities leading societies. The ensemble is also known to have student performers of a very high standard. As the show will journey through different operatic eras, the show promises to be full of variety as operatic solos, duets, trios, and choruses will all be performed under a rock aesthetic!
