Whilst we are in a Peruvian mood, it is also worth noting that the other opera based on the same story as La Perichole is making its UK debut this summer. Dorset Opera are performing La Carosse du Saint Sacrement by Lord Berners, his only opera. They are giving the UK stage premiere of the opera in a double bill with Puccini's Suor Angelica. Performed in Paris in 1923, Berners' comic opera has never been staged in Britain. Performances take place on 26 and 28 July at Bryanston School. The group will also be staging Verdi's Il Trovatore.
