Chelsea Opera Group new season

Chelsea Opera Group have announced their 2009/2010 season. On 28/11/2009 they are performing Gluck's Alceste in the French version, conducted by Nicholas Collon. This will be a welcome chance to hear the opera in London as I don't think it has had a proper outing since the production for Janet Baker at the Royal Opera House.

Then on 21st February 2010 they are celebrating 10 years of their association with the soprano Nelly Miricioiu and presenting her in La Traviata. Finally, on 23 May 2010 we have Rossini's Guillaume Tell with Majella Cullagh as Mathilde, conducted by Dominic Wheeler. A mammoth undertaking but one which will be well worth it as this wonderful opera deserves to be performed more. Both these 2010 concerts are at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

COG's next concert is on 7th June 2009 when they are doing Verdi's original version of Simon Boccanegra at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
