An Evening of Opera - in Castle Park *
This is an outdoor event at the Lower Bowling Green in Castle Park, Colchester.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Colchester Cllr Tim Young and Nicola Goodchild invite you to join them under the stars in an intimate evening of song and symphony.
As the Autumnal Equinox marks the changing of the seasons, settle in to the fairy lit embrace of the new theatre space in the Old Bowling Green. As day turns to night, the beautiful trees which envelop the green will provide the dramatic backdrop for a wonderful evening of entertainment!
Bring your chairs, picnics, blankets and maybe even a flask of hot chocolate for later...
Following a hugely successful Summer tour, we are thrilled to be bringing Wild Arts' evening to Castle Park....A love story built around your favourite opera classics, arranged into 75 minutes of musical heaven. Music from Die Fledermaus and Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, and the glorious works of Handel, Rossini, Beethoven and Verdi, with bonus classics from Sondheim and Rogers and Hammerstein. All sung by the stars of tomorrow and played by a stunning string quintet. The show will make you laugh and cry, and leave you wanting more, and you’ll be home in time for the 10 o’clock news.
