This April, Oxford Operatic Society invites you to enjoy the music of operetta with their show ‘A Celebration of Operetta’.
Split into two acts, A Celebration of Operetta takes the audience on a journey through the famous operettas. The first half is a celebration of Johann Strauss' Die Fledermaus. The themes of romance, deception and revenge will all be captured within this shortened version. During the second act, the talented singers will showcase a variety of well-known operetta classics including Orpheus of the Underworld and The Merry Widow.
Oxford’s renowned music society celebrated their 70th anniversary last year. In the early days operettas were a regular choice of production for the society and Oxford Operatic Society are thrilled to be performing this genre once again.
A Celebration of Operetta will be performed in the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, St Hilda’s College. With a beautiful setting this unique performance is really not one to miss.
The production team for this production include Musical Director - Stephen Barratt, Pianist - Nia Williams and Presented by Simon Tavener.
Duration: 2 hours 30mins
