Alex Roose, Kate Macfarlane & Bethany Hill Sunday Soirée, Winter Warmer #1
What better way to spend a winter’s afternoon than to settle into the cosy ambience of La Boheme, sip a beverage of your choosing, and be swept away on the wings of song?
In our Sunday Soirée, Bethany Hill, Kate Macfarlane and Alex Roose thrilled the sell-out crowd with a selection of favourite operatic arias and ensembles, accompanied by Sachiko Hidaka. A rather cheeky narrative subtext had us all wondering just which singer fancied who, with the ‘off-stage’ shenanigans wending their way into the performance to hilarious effect. Much fun was had by all.
Our second Winter Warmer in 2018 was a specially arranged performance of that rarely heard jewel of a cantata, Handel’s Aci, Galatea e Polifemo. Enchanting young rising stars Karina Bligh and Charlotte Kelso were joined by the sensuous baritone of Lachan Scott, accompanied by Lucinda Moon and Glenys March.
