Singers, conductors, a stage director and répétiteur from the Jette Parker Young Artists scheme join to present an afternoon of opera which this year takes its inspiration from the history, glamour and mystery of Venice. The first part of this year's matinee features scenes from Rossini's lesser-known works 'Signor Bruschino' and 'Bianca e Falliero' as well as the Act 1 conclusion of 'Otello'. In the second half, evocations of Venice come from Donizetti, Offenbach and Britten. The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House accompanies throughout.
