Support from TORCH

I am thrillled to announce that the Rameau's Rising Stars project has been awarded £10,000 from Humanities Cultural Programme at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH). This significant sum will enable us to build on the past achievements of the Rameau Project and bring to life - for the first time in the UK - the original version of Castor et Pollux, one of Rameau’s most revolutionary scores. In addition to helping us to stimulate new research activity and develop repertoire‐specific expertise amongst UK‐based student and professional musicians, the funding will specifically enable us to livestream the Castor premiere on 15 May and bring our work to a global audience.

Refocusing our activities in Oxford, this event is an important stepping‐stone to other performances around the UK during 2022 – including the first Rameau opera in Wales – and to a fully staged production with dance in 2023/24...
