On the 17th September we have a day workshop with John Hancorn on Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
We have a fine group of soloists.
Debbie Catterall – Dido
Tom Salmon – Aeneas
Katy Howarth – Belinda
Jenny Murphy – 2nd Woman
The details are on the workshops page.
When you apply do mention if you would like an opportunity to take one of the smaller solo roles.
We had a most successful and enjoyable day with Stephen Rice exploring a tiny part of the huge output of this fine Flemish composer.
