Iford New Generation Artists Concert

We are proud to present our Young Artists in a concert of well-loved operatic arias and ensembles, curated and accompanied on piano by Oliver Gooch, Iford Arts Music Director. The performers, a clutch of starry young singers, are selected by audition from the exciting new generation of performers to join our Young Artists Scheme.

CHROMA musicians Daniel Pioro and Clare O’Connell, joined by viol player Liam Byrne and actor Trevor Allan Davies, will explore the theme of sleep, and, possibly, sleeplessness, in a deeply meditative dream sequence interspersed with a selection of readings on the nature of sleep.

La bohème

From the first delicate moments of her shyly hesitant entry Mimi’s music and her story wrings your heartstrings. Against the background of chaotic student life where young men sew their wild oats, and the vampish Musetta reigns supreme, Parisian life Puccini’s ever youthful characters await the onset of responsibility. It is impossible to remain untouched by the rich and dreamy music and the very human love stories of this, his best-loved work.

Barber of Seville

Rossini’s incomparable score and witty musical illustration of every character and turn of the story cannot fail to exhilarate. Whether furtive or frenzied, restrained or reckless The Barber of Seville truly is comedy in music with every nuance exploited. It is created for Iford Arts by Charles Court Opera, who brought us their spellbinding production of The Magic Flute in 2016.

Jeptha’s bold deal with God leads to unimaginable consequences for his innocent daughter Iphis and his outraged wife. Conducted by Christopher Bucknall (Agrippina in 2015) and directed by Tim Nelson, this great work, with its surprising conclusion, still raises questions for today.
