Rosenkavalier 2014Edinburgh Players Opera Group

Read more about the opera Rosenkavalier

Edinburgh Players' Opera Group this year selected Richard Strauss's  Rosenkavalier as a break in the sequence of Wagner's operas. There are always those who avoid 'amateur' performances, but the players  in this enterprise reached a particularly high standard in the level of professional training. Also, they performing for the love of it!

As before, the players rehearsed the opera on the Friday and Saturday and then on the Sunday performed the work complete. Members of the public are welcome, with a voluntary donation of £15 requested to help cover costs (the participants pay more!).

The conductor was, as usual, Mike Thorne, and the leader Iain Scott. Most of the singers had taken part in previous years.

Contact address for the group was michael.thorne@anglia.ac.uk.
