There are still a few tickets left for our final performances of Poulenc’s Les Carmélites at Grange Park Opera  - don’t miss it!

 “the ensemble of strong soloists and the English Chamber Orchestra in strong form created a richly expressive and profoundly moving performance  (Planet Hugill, 12 June 2013)

 “this splendid, moving performance of Poulenc’s opera”  (Geoff Brown, The Times, 13 June 2013)

 “the power of the greatest opera written in my lifetime worked its magic “  (Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph, 12 June 2013)

 “the full sensuality of a score that belies Poulenc's membership of Les Six and harks back to the flowing sounds of Debussy - admirably performed by the English Chamber Orchestra and conducted by Stephen Barlow. Indeed, Carmélites is as much an opera for the large orchestra it requires for its gorgeous motifs, as it is for the singers with their haunting harmonies.” (Huffington Post, June 2013)
