Christmas Soirée 2018Our annual Christmas Soirée will be held at Whitgift School Concert Hall at 7.30pm on Sunday 16th Dec, with a slightly different format this year.
We are thrilled that Stephen Anthony Brown, who played the title role in this summer’s production of Candide, will once again conduct the concert and also be our tenor soloist. He will be joined by Charlotte Hoather, Giles Davis, and Tim Baldwin, who were lead principals in Candide, for a potpourri of opera favourites and some festive items in the first half of the programme, with a concert performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s highly entertaining Trial by Jury in the second half – all accompanied by the very accomplished Caroline Jaya‑Ratnam.
Surrey Opera is actively looking for additional enthusiastic chorus members — all those interested please contact Mark Edwards.
We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7.45pm at Clyde Hall in East Croydon.
