We would like to annouce that we will be performing La Bohème in 2016. Our sister company Regents Opera is also performing La Bohème and full details are on our dates page. Our 2015 production of The Marriage of Figaro recieved this review.
Also after our first night at Kirklinton Hall we recieved this note.
"Last night's performance of "The Marriage of Figaro" at Kirklinton Hall was simply magnificent. The penultimate aria "Contessa perdono!", the Contessa's "Più docile sono" reply and the final ten-voice "Ah! tutti contenti" was the most exquisite musical experience I have ever known. I'm still feeling emotional about it this morning.
The singing, the acting, the sheer physicality of your performances - every moment was magically enhanced by the closeness and intimacy of the setting. As an ensemble, what I noticed was your infectious sense of enjoyment. All of you genuinely seemed to delight in performing together. The musical accompaniment heightened the emotion of the singing without ever being overriding.
I am can say in all honesty that your performance was a life-changing moment for me and for that, you all have everlasting gratitude. Thank you."
Since 1993 Opera A La Carte has established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting and original chamber opera companies. Its founder and director, Nicholas Heath, has used his extensive musical and performing experience as well as his knowledge of the established talents and rising stars at Covent Garden and ENO to create a flexible company equally at home with corporate cabaret to a full scale opera.
Their flair and enthusiasm has provoked great critical acclaim … ‘Dare we say, better than Glyndebourne…’
