Basingstoke Choral Society presents a selection of the most popular operas.

Among the arias and choruses being performed will be Bizet’s famous duet from The Pearl Fishers, Verdi’s much loved Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves, the drinking song from La Traviata, the beautiful Easter hymn from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, as well as the Waltz from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. The evening concludes with Wagner’s Procession and Chorale from Die Meistersinger.

No good opera plot can be sensible, for people do not sing when they are feeling sensible.” W.H.Auden
