City Recital Hall becomes a Parisian Salon to celebrate Bastille Day
Join classical superstars, soprano Yvonne Kenny, flautist Jane Rutter, accordionist Marcello Maio and baritone Andrew Jones. The stellar lineup will be accompanied by a small chamber ensemble including: Owen Torr on harp an Vincent Colagiuri on piano performing Parisian classical arias, Chansons and delicious salon pieces.
La Rêvolution will take you on a journey to the heart of the French Romantic Operatic era. To the passionate world of the Parisian salons and the languid, joyous insouciance of French Impressionism.
Artistic director, Jane Rutter has created a seductive program which includes a wonderful selection of works including; Ravel’s La Flûte Enchantée, Piece en Forme de Habanera and Chansons à Boire, Fauré’s Sicilienne and Après un Rêve, Debussy’s Claire de Lune, Cole Porter’s So In Love and Eric Satie’s classical Parisian cabaret favourite La Diva de l’Empire. With excerpts from Bizet’s Carmen and Les Pecheurs de Perle, and musical délices by Hahn, Messager, Chausson, Poulenc, Offenbach, and Saint-Saëns. Bastille Day never looked this good!
Vive la France! Vive La Musique!
