La lingua amara dell'amore (opera)

The exciting project Opera Coast began in Eastbourne last summer when the group performed Scenes From La Traviata as the culmination of a weekend workshop. This year's summer workshop will be scenes from The Rake's Progress but in the meantime Opera Coast are creating a mid-season 'Interlude' concert. In association with the Eastbourne Festival and as the next step in their mission to bring opera to local people, La lingua amara dell'amore will be performed at the Birley Centre in April. Project Coordinator Anastasia Witts told me more about what we can expect:

AW: Young soloists that sang with us last year or are to sing with us in the future are performing an evening of opera arias and ensembles entitled La lingua amara dell'amore - The Bitter Tongue of Love. In our programme we are including numbers in different languages - from Italian to Russian and Czech aiming to give our audience an opportunity to think about the most powerful of human feelings and the ways it is portrayed in opera.

The soloists will again be joined by Nigel Foster at the piano and the music will be by composers including Mozart, Verdi, Lehar, Rimsky-Korsakov, Dvorak, Walton and Strauss.

Birley Centre, Sat 6th Apr, 19.00.
Tickets £12 adults, free for under 20s, available online through wegottickets or in person at the Tourist Information Office.
