Fiona Hamilton introduced Opera Holloway to Poundbury. Fiona Hamilton runs Opera Prelude which is a small charity, giving experience and employment opportunities to some of the country’s finest young singers at the start of their careers, hosting lecture recitals, concerts, operas, workshops for inner city children and Masterclasses.
Opera Prelude’s regular lecturers, Callie Swarbrick (soprano) and Lewis Gaston (conductor) run their own young opera company, Opera Holloway which collaborates with Opera Prelude on a number of projects throughout the year.
This will be Opera Holloway’s second visit to Poundbury after an extremely well received performance of La Scala di Seta in 2015. This summer, Opera Holloway is staging Don Pasquale by Donizetti: a hugely entertaining comedy, sung in Italian with subtitles.
