Puccini: La fanciulla del West

There are many strong women in the world of opera, and some of the most significant are found in the operas of Puccini. On this list of great heroines we find Minnie - the focal point of Puccini's masterpiece La fanciulla del West.

Minnie is the owner of the local bar in a rough, poor town. Here, every day is about survival and about finding happiness despite life's hardships. Amidst the harsh life in the small town, Minnie manages to add a little colour to the world and create a small breathing space for the exhausted workers.

But Minnie's oasis is threatened when she falls in love with an outlaw on the run and has to fight for her love and for the chance to start a new life with her love by her side.

La fanciulla del West is conducted by Alexander Vedernikov who will become The Royal Danish Orchestra's Chief Conductor in 2018.

Pianist and composer Ivo Neame has now reached European star status with his work with piano trio Phronesis and with Norwegian superstar saxophonist Marius Neset. A considerable leap up from those Kentish Town Loop Collective sessions of a few years ago. Having heard his own Quartet at this year's Swanage Festival, where he delighted a full church venue of typical elderly mainstream jazz fans with his innovative but beautifull-melodic and accessible music, we are fortunate to be able to attract such a busy musician to the House. If you think new-wave Euro jazz is all about ice-cold intellectualism, come and have your prejudice confounded. At some points George Crowley almost sounds like one of those classic Texas tenors; there are real jazz roots in this music.

Svitlana Azarova: Momo and the Time-Thieves

One day a strange little girl appears in a quiet little town. Her name is Momo and she is alone in the world. The townspeople soon discover that there is something special about Momo: She does not say a great deal, but when she listens, the most beautiful music starts to play and everyone, who is angry or sad, becomes happy again.

Soon, however, strange things start to happen all over town. Strange grey men appear and as more and more arrive, the adults of the town seem to have less and less time on their hands. Momo discovers that the Grey Men are stealing the townspeople's time, and that she is the only one who can see them. She decides to take on the Grey Men and soon receives help from an unexpected friend.

Momo and the Time-Thieves is one of the most beloved children's books in Germany. It was written by Michael Ende, who is also the author of The Neverending Story.

Take a trip to the land of fairy tales with your whole family to see Momo bring back the stolen time.

Tickets are valid for one or both of the concerts.
We are currently living in a refugee crisis unseen since the Second World War with approximately 65.3 million people now refugees, seeking asylum or internally displaced. Therefore we have decided to give these 2 concerts in aid of one of the most important charities in the world at the moment, working with refugees, Help Refugees.
From Help Refugees' mission statement:
"Help Refugees is not simply another aid organisation. We work where governmental and other non-governmental bodies can (or will) not, filling the gaps and providing emergency aid and vital services to those affected by the global refugee crisis. We act fast to get aid and services directly and immediately to the people who need it most by identifying the most effective grassroots groups, local people, individual volunteers and refugees themselves active in the crisis and providing them with funding and support, enabling them to focus their time and energy on the vital work they do every day. Help Refugees are also operational where needed across Europe, providing our experienced teams to maintain quality services and uphold dignity for refugees.”

"For many years I have admired Idit as both a singer and a teacher of singing: she brings to all her musicmaking a lively professionalism and integrity, coupled with the gift of communication which inspires others to aspire to the same high standards. I have witnessed her in action as a teacher and have seen how quickly she can achieve positive results with committed students by pinpointing the specific areas of development relevant to each individual singer – the singers themselves are frequently surprised at the speed of their progress under Idit’s tuition. I enthusiastically recommend Idit as an exceptional teacher who commands international respect."
