We loved our livestream opera gala from the Rogue Opera Studio in a celebration of Love and Friendship!
Broadcast on Saturday 13th February, 7:30 pm GMT
Broadcast live from the Rogue Opera Studio on Saturday 13th February 2021, Soprano Anna Sideris, Mezzo-Soprano Bronwen Stephens-Harding and Baritone Sam Young, accompanied by pianist Guy Murgatroyd, brought a delightful program of arias, duets and trios from some of opera's most beautiful music of love, joy, friendship and hope to a virtual audience.
During the difficult time of distance from our friends, family and loved ones, viewers were able to share the experience virtually with someone outside your household, bubble (or country!) with our Share the Love 2, 3 or 4 device tickets.
Watch the video below for Anna Sideris and Pianist Guy Murgatroyd wonderful delivery of this beautiful aria from Puccini's La Boheme where Mimi, in the frisson of her first encounter with poet Rodolfo, opens up to him about her life and hopes....
About Rogue Opera Online
I have been into a lot of different music in my 44 years of life. I have been to see Metallica to Lisa Loeb, hard house to folk festivals and Jazz clubs to rap shows. Since listening and watching online over the past two or three months I have become more educated about opera and more of a fan of opera in general.
These online performances are engaging and create a magical atmosphere! Bronwen's relaxed and amiable interaction with her audience explaining the story behind each musical piece only served to make each experience even more special.
I was transported to another world!
The energy, skill and professionalism of the team really shone. A wonderful and unique experience that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!
Absolutely mind-blowing. The quality of the performance was really impressive, and as Bronwen introduced each aria with a short explanation, it was easy to understand for my boys and me. I highly recommend Rogue Opera and Bronwen - she brought the magic of opera into our home!
A wonderful opera company finding fantastic ways to bring opera to a wider audience!
