To celebrate the restoration of the Institut Français's Steinway and to announce its forthcoming piano festival, Dame Felicity Lott and pianist Jason Carr offer a recital entitled based on Laurent Pelly's new production, which will make its debut at the Opéra de Lille next week.
Airs from operas, musical comedies, lieder and songs. From young waif led astray to bitter old spinster, the most francophile of British singers celebrates love in all its forms, in a big acting number that mixes refined elegance with unhinged fantasy.
(Followed by a cocktail reception in presence of the artists. In aid of the Institut's piano festival in March 2013.)
