Classical Opera's ambitious new plans

Ian Page, artistic director of Classical Opera
Classical Opera will be releasing a recording Mozart's first large-scale drama Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots on the Signum label this month. This represents the first step in an ambitious plan to release a new Mozart opera every year until the complete opera cycle is on disc. Additionally, Signum will release a further disc each year with Classical Opera.  The record of Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots is available from 30 September, with Ian Page conducting the Orchestra of Classica Opera with soloists Allan Clayton, Andrew Kennedy, Sophie Bevan, Sarah Fox and Cora Burggraaf. 

The release is being celebrated with a concert performance of the work at Wigmore Hall on 24 September with  cast including Sarah Fox, Andrew Kennedy, Allan Clayton, Ailish Tynan and Mery Bevan. Further ahead the group is giving an all Mozart programme for the New Year's Eve concert at the Wigmore Hall.  Then they are joined by bass Matthew Rose for a concert of Haydn and Mozart at the Wigmore Hall on 30 January 2014. March 2014 sees them performing Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito at Cadogan Hall with Andrew Kennedy as Tito and Sara Jane Brandon as Vitellia.
