'Béatrice et Bénédict' by Berlioz @ St Mary’s Church, Princes Risborough

Aylesbury Opera presents this sublime comedy in concert version, led from the piano by Kelvin Lim. We will sing in French with a narration in English replacing the spoken dialogue. The performances will include an interval and end at about 9.30pm.

Tickets £12 (children free). Available on the door or in advance:

Carried along in a maelstrom of laughter, joy, bad faith, deferred confessions, concealed kindness and false indifference, Berlioz’s opera overflows with musical summits, the epitome of which is the scintillating Nocturne at the end of Act I – a slow duet of pure poetry described by W.J. Turner as “a marvel of indescribable lyrical beauty”.
