A new company for anyone aged 40+ with an enthusiasm to explore classic and contemporary plays on their feet.
This April, Oxford Operatic Society invites you to enjoy the music of operetta with their show ‘A Celebration of Operetta’.
Split into two acts, A Celebration of Operetta takes the audience on a journey through the famous operettas. The first half is a celebration of Johann Strauss' Die Fledermaus. The themes of romance, deception and revenge will all be captured within this shortened version. During the second act, the talented singers will showcase a variety of well-known operetta classics including Orpheus of the Underworld and The Merry Widow.
Oxford’s renowned music society celebrated their 70th anniversary last year. In the early days operettas were a regular choice of production for the society and Oxford Operatic Society are thrilled to be performing this genre once again.
A Celebration of Operetta will be performed in the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, St Hilda’s College. With a beautiful setting this unique performance is really not one to miss.
The production team for this production include Musical Director - Stephen Barratt, Pianist - Nia Williams and Presented by Simon Tavener.
