Rameau’s Rising Stars: Castor highlights in Hampstead
October 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Rameau’s Castor et Pollux was the work for which he was most esteemed in his lifetime. On 3rd October we are offering a delicious 'taster' menu of the best arias and dances from the full opera.
Rameau's music, endlessly inventive and fresh, will be performed by a mini corona-safe band joined by two of our sensational singers from next year's full production, Hilary Cronin and Xavier Hetherington, who will sing some of Rameau's most inspired lyric creations.
This concert is the first stop in our Rameau's Rising Stars project which will explore Castor et Pollux and culminate in the UK premiere of the 1737 version in London and Oxford.
Join us on the start of our journey!
