 As you  might expect from the name, Five Senses Music invites the audience to get close enough to the action to explore it with all five senses, to allow for a different kind of contact, a truly physical engagement and meaningful interaction.

Under conductor Tom Seligman ]who conducted Chelsea Opera Group's recent performance of Verdi's Un giorno di regno, see my review], Five Senses Music are presenting a concert performance of Puccini's Gianni Schicchi in the ​St Andrew's Building of the Grey Coat Hospital School, Greycoat Place, London SW1P 2DYon Saturday 25 January 2020 at 6pm. And conductor Tom Seligman will introduce the piece.

The fine young cast includes Andrew Mayor [whom we saw as Rodrigo in Fulham Opera's production of Verdi's Don Carlo, see my review] in the title role, with Lauren Campbell-Lodge and Seumas Begg as the young lovers, James Gribble as the doctor and notary, and Jessica Gillingwater [whom we heard in the BBC Singers performance of Handel's Israel in Egypt, see my review], Adam Maxey [Don Magnifico on British Youth Opera's production of Rossini's La Cenerentola, see my review], Philippa Boyle [Elisabeth in Fulham Opera's Don Carlo], Emma Lewis [Mother Goose in British Youth Opera's production of Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, see my review], Jerome Knox [Dandini in British Youth Opera's La Cenerentola], Lyndon Green and Stefan Berkieta as the members of the Donati family.
