Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society and orchestra directed by David Ballard present their Summer Gala Concert performing Haydn’s The Seasons with soloists Zaira Palumbo soprano, Lawrence Thackeray tenor and Tom Appleton bass. Tickets £15 (under 18’s free) from Auden Theatre Box Office 01263 713444 or online at www.audentheatre.co.uk
Written in 1802 The Seasons has perhaps been somewhat in the shadow of Haydn’s other great oratorio The Creation. Although originally written in English it has often been performed in an English translation from German which lacks much of the piquancy in the original libretto. This performance uses a recently released English libretto which is far closer to Haydn’s original allowing his wit, humour and musical genius to be shown at its very finest.
In order to enjoy the fine location of the Auden Theatre on what we hope will be a fine summer evening ticket holders are invited to picnic on the lawns between the Theatre and the new Music School prior to the concert. The bar will be open from 6.30 pm.
