Saturday’s concert will include excerpts from The Enchanted Pig
Prolifically successful opera composer Jonathan Dove is introducing pieces from his operas at a fundraiser for Hampstead Garden Opera at St Michael’s, Highgate, this Saturday evening (August 5).
“The concert is going to be something very special,” says HGO chairman Roger Sainsbury. “Jonathan has written more than 25 operas of many different genres – comic operas, dramas, family operas, church operas, community operas and more.
“His Mansfield Park – Jane Austen set to music – was a hit when staged by HGO in 2013 and we shall be performing his The Enchanted Pig at Jackson’s Lane in November.”
Four singers, rising stars of the opera world, are performing items from six Dove operas at Saturday evening’s concert, including pieces from Flight, Mansfield Park and The Enchanted Pig.
