Sir Arthur Sullivan: A musical portrait

1st January 2023

SORRY, THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AND POSTPONED UNTIL 2023 BECAUSE OF COVID-19.

A concert that puts the spotlight on a composer who wrote much more than a string of phenomenally popular comic operas in association with his librettist WS Gilbert. With the participation of the Risingholme Orchestra and soloists, the programme features perennial favourites from a number of these operas – including The Pirates of Penzance, HMS Pinafore and The Mikado.

We also showcase a number of Sullivan’s works for orchestra, and for orchestra and choir, among them the first movement of his Symphony in E (“Irish”); choral excerpts from his incidental music to King Arthur; and his Boer War Te Deum

Prepare to be surprised as well as entertained.
