Description

Anna Harvey (mezzo) and Mark Austin (piano) perform a journey in song exploring various aspects of the Divine. Haydn’s extraordinary quasi-operatic cantata for voice and keyboard brings destiny into the drawing room as Ariadne, cruelly abandoned by Theseus, moves us with her fate. Schubert’s Lieder enchant with their lyrical depictions of nature and one of Schumann’s best-loved song cycles sets exquisite poetry by Eichendorff which aims to transcend earthly experience.

Opera Prelude is a small charity passionate about supporting young professional opera singers who give lecture recitals in London. These friendly and inclusive events will introduce you to the international opera singers of tomorrow by way of recitals, concerts and masterclasses.
