Firstly, please will everyone outside a 50 mile radius of Market Harborough please accept my apologies for this item. It is a shameless plug for the wonderful OPERA MINIMA who are based at Great Easton in Leicestershire.
OPERA MINIMA was created in 1999 and became a registered charitable trust in 2001. The charity’s objectives are:
To broaden the appeal of opera
To give coaching and performing experience to young professional singers
To give young people a first hand insight into the art form
Opera Minima offers a variety of opera-based events, including workshops, masterclasses and a range of style of performance from themed programmes to semi-staged double or triple bills, semi-staged with piano accompaniment.
Performances take place in The Old Corset Factory in Great Easton in Leicestershire (between Corby and Market Harborough) and in a variety of other venues and often include supper as well!
I strongly urge you to get some tickets and enjoy a bit of culture on your doorstep, although I am reliably informed that they have had people coming from Northumberland, Devon and Sussex to their shows, who then make a weekend of it. Contact details are on the poster below.
