The Group is always open to suggestions as to the manner in which the afternoon should be spent, but the current format tends to consist of watching, discussing and comparing a range of generally popular Operas recorded on DVDs and projected on to a large screen.
Most operas occupy a couple of afternoons, and recent choices have included Donizetti’s DON PASQUALE, Bellini’s I PURITANI, Puccini’s MANON LESCAUT, Gounod’s ROMEO and JULIETTE, Donizetti’s L’ELISIR D’AMORE - Verdi’s ERNANI and Mozart’s MARRIAGE of FIGARO.
2013 was the bicentenary year of both Verdi and Wagner, so some of their operas featured strongly.
A Synopsis of each Opera and other items of interest are sent out in advance to each Member by e-mail.
