The world premiere of a new opera by Clive Osgood (specially commissioned by Imagine That Productions) will be performed on Saturday May 25th & Sunday May 26th at 730pm in St Christopher’s Church, Haslemere.
The opera is based on John Gay’s “Beggar’s Opera” (premiered in 1728 & the most popular play of the Eighteenth century).
Just as in the original Clive Osgood, has stayed true to the use of popular ballads and songs of the period whilst combining them with his own unique soundscape. The story satirises politics, poverty and injustice, focusing on the theme of corruption at all levels of society.
Excellent local singers of all ages (trained by Philip O’Brien at the Haslemere Singing Studio) are accompanied by players from the Artington Quartet and conducted by Justin Luke.
PLEASE NOTE: This event is at St Christopher's Church.
