Opera comes to the Palace

Posted onPosted on 6th Apr

Swansea City Opera visits Mansfield Palace Theatre on Sunday, 23rd April with Lakmé, following its highly-acclaimed 2016 tour of La Bohème.

The opera is sung in English and best known for the famous Flower Duet, which has become one of the most familiar numbers any composer, in any genre, has written.

Like other French operas of the period, it captures the ambience of the Orient seen through Western eyes and, topically for today, tells of religious tensions and conflict leading to personal sacrifice, heartbreak and death.

Swansea City Opera is setting its production of Lakmé in India during the Raj of the 1880s, sung in English and accompanied by a chamber orchestra.

There is an opportunity to attend a free pre-performance talk.
