A stunningly beautiful performance in the atmospheric setting of Ushaw Chapel of Couperin’s “Trois Leçons de ténèbres” sung Emily Owen and Charlotte La Thrope, with Sam Stadlen (viola da gamba) and John Green (organ). I had goose-bumps from the very first notes.
My idea of a perfect summer afternoon: sitting in a cool church listening to Baroque chamber music. Review of a concert by Charlotte La Thrope, Deborah Thorne and John Green.
A delightful performance of Handel’s “Acis and Galatea”, performed by the Bishop’s Consort with Hugo Hymas and Charlotte La Thrope in the title roles.
Durham Opera Ensemble put on a touching, witty and thoroughly entertaining performance of Mozart’s final opera, “The Magic Flute”.
