Berwick Festival Opera and Rocket Opera are closing their 2018 season in style with a festively-themed opera recital in the intimate acoustic of The Maltings’ Studio. A sparkling tree, the magical wintry lights of Berwick in the distance, a glass of something warming, and a massive dose of Christmas cheer will make this the perfect prelude to your Happy Holidays.

A trio of familiar voices will be accompanied by our Steinway grand piano as we celebrate the magic of Christmas in truly operatic terms with a sublime programme including:
  • Overture, Champagne Trio and Mein Herr Marquis from Die Fledermaus
  • Pourquoi me reveiller, Claie de Lune and Va laisser couler mes Larmes from Werther
  • Quando men vo and Che gelida manina from la Boheme
  • Evening Prayer from Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel
  • Panis Angelicus from Franck
  • as well as a choice selection of carols and Christmas favourites
Tenor AUSTIN GUNN is well-known to Berwick audiences for his starring performances for BFO since its launch 2014, combining a fabulous voice with a great sense of drama - and excellent comic timing. He’s worked for English National Opera, Scottish Opera and has appeared at the Edinburgh International Festival, as well as performing in recitals around the UK and Europe.

Berwick-based TAMSIN DAVIDSON is another favourite with BFO audiences after stand-out performances in Dido & Aeneas, The Mikado, La Scala di Seta, Iolanthe, and The Vampyre, alongside her busy schedule as a soloist at recitals across the UK.
