All you ever wanted to know about The Ring

Nelly Miricioiu as Norma in Rome
Divas and Scholars' History of Opera Champagne Evenings continue next week with Richard Peirson talking about Wagner's Ring Cycle. On 13 May Peirson is joined by soprano Rachel Nicholls to provide sung excerpts from the Cycle. Divas and Scholars address another 19th century landmark on 11 June, when Sandy Burnett talks about Bizet's Carmen with Sophie Goldrick and Christian Dawson providing the musical excerpts. Both evenings take place in Chelsea.

For those wishing to explore a composer in greater and depth, Divas and Scholars is presenting a study day on Bellini on 19 June. Opera Historian Sarah Lenton will be talking about bel canto, I will be talking about Bellini's life and times and soprano Nelly Miricioiu, who has sung many of Bellini's soprano roles, will be giving a lecture recital. The study day takes place at Cadogan Hall on 19 June 2014.
