English Touring Opera Masterclass

23 October 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hatfield Chapel
Hatfield College, Durham. DH1 3RQ

This autumn English Touring Opera present two shows covering the broad expanse of the baroque, from the very birth of recitative in the Stile Concitato madrigals of Gesualdo and his contemporaries through to the burst of enthusiasm for Italian Opera in London that fueled some of Handel’s greatest works.

Coinciding with their visit to the Gala Theatre, Durham on the 22nd and 23rd October, soprano Sky Ingram (Dido, Dido & Aeneas) will be giving a masterclass on singing Purcell, and offering technical advice on vocal production generally that will be of benefit to vocalists of any discipline. Attendance and participation is free for University students and staff, but places are limited. For further information and to book your place as a participant or observer, please email music.coordinator@durham.ac.uk.
