The next concert at the Bognor Regis Music Club on Saturday, February 1 at 7pm will be given by Erin Alexander (soprano), accompanied by Nick Miller (piano).
On a High Note is the story of soprano Graziella Sciutti, who was a contemporary of Maria Callas and helped pioneer the movement of opera singers becoming actors.
Club chairman Chris Coote said: “It is performed in an intimate An Audience With… style and features arias sung by the roles which made her career such as Susanna, Despina, Rosina, and Musetta; anecdotes from her interviews; and the heartbreak that comes with the price of success. The presentation has toured in the UK with great success, particularly at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.”
The programme includes arias from operas and oratorios by Bach, Mozart, Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, Poulenc and Menotti.
The concert is at the Club’s concert room, 2 Sudley Road, PO21 4EU. Entry at the door is £9 for members, £11 for visitors, and £5 for students. New members and visitors are especially welcome.
