Opera Live at Home

What a treat to have an opera singer in one's home. We loved the interaction with the singer and accompanist at the end.

The concert exceeded my expectations.

I was smiling and physically moving throughout.

Such an added dimension being able to speak to the performers afterwards.

The concept

Opera recitals streamed straight into your home followed by a short Q&A with the artists afterwards. A relaxed opera evening: pour yourself a drink and enjoy!

Past performances

Over the past months the following artists have performed in our sessions: Kieran Rayner & Gamal Khamis, Christine Buras & Thomas Ang. We’re delighted that soprano Claire Lees and pianist Dylan Perez who kicked off Opera Live At Home back in September, will return in Spring 2021.

 

Next up: 23 February 2021

February’s home session will be with soprano Milly Forrest, winner of the 2020 Kathleen Ferrier Loveday Song Prize accompanied by Ian Tindale.

30 March 2021

Mezzo-soprano Joanna Harries appears with Ashley Beauchamp in our March recital.

The opportunity to chat to the artists, is something you would normally never experience after a performance.

Opera Live At Home provides a much needed platform for young, UK-based opera singers and accompanists, as well as bringing live music to you in your own home. Helen Astrid is the driving force behind this initiative.

Live music has been sorely missed since March 2020, when the onset of coronavirus obliterated performances in opera houses, concert halls and theatres around the world. We’ve found a solution – to bring live music directly to you in your home instead.

What makes this concept unique is the opportunity to meet the artists afterwards, something you would never normally experience.

We are delighted to provide such an intimate setting; a highly rewarding and nourishing experience for both our audiences and artists and a rare chance for the opera stars of tomorrow to be seen and heard especially during these unprecedented times.
