Opera for Fun
What it is: An opera or the work of a composer is presented, using a range of media.
When it is: Fortnightly on Thursdays 2.00 to 4.00 p.m.
Where it is: Lower Hall, Badminton Road Methodist Church, Badminton Road, Downend BS16 6NU from 27th May 2021. Hoping to return to the Castle Suite, Badminton Gardens, from late June 2021.
We look at a wide range of opera from late 18th to early 20th century, frequently works that are unjustly ignored or difficult to perform, and avoiding those that need much longer than 90 minutes (most of Wagner) or those that make musical demands greater than the presenter or members can appreciate (much modern music). The important thing is that we enjoy ourselves.
