Our acclaimed German Language Concerts in 2017 explored an evolutionary line that stretched from Mozart to Richard Strauss. Whilst this is a very clear historic progression in the music of the German-speaking world, Mozart's influence also extended to other cultures, and most of his best known operas are in Italian. This concert explores these other branches of influence. It is both an opportunity to hear his music alongside that of Rossini, his successor in the medium of Italian opera, and to explore his less obvious, but equally profound, influence on the great Russian composer - Tchaikovsky, who continued to reference him, even a century after Mozart's death.

This is a chance to hear music from Mozart's three great DaPonte operas, alongside two contrasting Rossini masterpieces. Interwoven with these is music from the Romantic operas of Tchaikovsky, who loved and absorbed Mozart's music above all others. The Tchaikovsky selections even include the rare and beautiful duet from his planned, but never completed, opera of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Opera Foundry's Artistic Director, Richard Cartmale (formerly of ENO) introduces this fresh journey through the music of three great opera composers, with acclaimed pianist, Sarah Quantrell and fourteen specially selected soloists from the Opera Foundry programme.
