What a start to the season for the Arts & Literary Society members. London Festival Opera presented a feast for all with their witty and entertaining performance last Monday evening. This was a Night at the Opera with a programme of popular repertoire tracing the British Royal Family from Tudor times through to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11. Created and presented by Artistic Director and Baritone Philip Blake-Jones along with Natasha Jouhl, soprano, Elinor Rolfe Johnson, Soprano, Charlotte Stephenson, Mezzo Soprano, Alexander James Edwards, Tenor with Jenny Trew on the piano and Emma Willams playing Flute, the audience were presented with a mixture of classical music from Verdi, Purcell, Handel, Mozart Rossini, Gilbert & Sullivan and lots more. The audience was invited to sing along (which they did with great enthusiasm and laughter).
This was just the first of 16 wonderful Monday nights at the Princes Theatre with Clacton Arts & Lits.
