YT popped into rehearsals at the wonderful new facilities at Ormiston Park Academy.
During lunch, we spoke to Danielle Chinnon, who has been a participant in ROH backed productions since 2008 and Dan Pargeter, for whom, this is the first time.
EBB and Flow: an opera mash-up is a newly devised performance which features music from three operas: Dido and Aeneas by Purcell, Mozart’s Idomeneo and Richard Taylor’s The Purfleet Opera: Ludd and Isis.
This unique evening of song has been devised, written and created by the Royal Opera House’s 140-voice Thurrock Community Chorus and includes performances from soloists from the Chorus under the baton of Jeremy Haneman. It is the first semi-staged performance for the Thurrock Community Chorus since The Purfleet Opera: Ludd and Isis was performed at the opening of the Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop in 2010.
Tickets for Ebb and Flow: an opera mash-up are £10 and concessions £8. Tickets can be booked online at www.roh.org.uk or by calling the Royal Opera House Box Office on 020 7304 4000.
