Sunday 28 October, 3pm

About the event

Venue: Roxburgh Hall Theatre

To celebrate 100 years of women's suffrage Arcadian Opera are performing the masterpiece of romantic operas, The Wreckers, composed by one of the foremost suffragettes, Dame Ethel Smyth. This little known and rarely performed piece is a jewel of British composition, reflecting the influence of the foremost German composers of the day, with whom Dame Ethel was intimately acquainted. The Musical Director of Arcadian Opera was the tenor in the only recording of the work, made at the Proms in 1994 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dame Ethel's death, and he brings a huge depth of research and enthusiasm to the project. Having been sponsored to mount this production in celebration of this important centenary, The Wreckers will be fully staged and performed with a full orchestra and a cast of experienced professional principal singers, with a chorus of very talented locals.
