Anything BUT opera!

A celebration of the smaller achievements of opera’s greatest composers

PURCHASE TICKETS ONLINE

Writing an opera is a challenge that looms large over the lives of many composers. Rossini could bash one out in 6 weeks, borrowing from other works and delegating the boring bits to students and friends. Messiaen started composing his only opera in 1979 and finished in 1983, swore it was his last and it had taken a toll on his health. So what are composers writing when they are retired, taking a break, avoiding or making fun of opera? Songs! Songs, for cabaret, saloons and beautiful evenings.

Genevieve Dickson and Jane Matheson are going to plunder the wealth of beautiful songs  NOT written for the grand opera stage, but for a little room like Ruby’s. Come and enjoy a glass of something after work on Wednesday the 20th of April, and the smaller achievements of some of opera’s greatest composers including Mozart, Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti and Britten.

Doors open 6:30 for all 7-10pm shows
