Win a day with Bellini and soprano Nelly Miricioiu

Courtesy of Divas and Scholars we have two wonderful prizes in our latest competition. First prize is attendance for two people at Divas and Scholars study day on Bellini at the Cadogan Hall on Thursday 19 June (10.30am to 3.30pm), when there will be lectures from Sarah Lenton and myself, plus a lecture recital from soprano Nelly Miricioiou, giving attendees a chance to spend a whole day learning about Bellini's life and hearing his music in context. 

Second prize is attendance for one person at the Divas and Scholars: History of Opera Champagne Evening on 11 June, when Sandy Burnett will be talking about Bizet's Carmen with musical excerpts provided by Sophie Goldrick accompanied by Christian Dawson.

Full details of how to enter the competition after the break.
