Chelsea Opera Group

Chelsea Opera Group are venturing into more popular territory for their next concert. On Sunday Feb 21st they will be performing Verdi's La Traviata at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, conducted by Gianluca Marciano. No unusual editions or rarity value here, but a fine opportunity to hear Nelly Miricioiu as Violetta. Miricioiu, is perhaps a bit mature for an ideal Violetta, but this represents a rare chance to hear her in London in mainstream repertoire. Apart from the odd Tosca, she has been represented in London in recent years mainly by more out of the way operas. For which we are profoundly grateful, but for once it will be interesting to hear her here. Germont Pere will be sung by Alan Opie, so we can be sure of some fireworks in Act 2.
