Michaelmas Term 2017
CUOS are pleased to announce that there will be two Michaelmas shows in October and November 2017, in addition to the return of the popular gala concert! See below for details of each event.
7.00pm, Thu 16th November
Emmanuel College Old Library
We warmly invite you to join Cambridge University Opera Society for a showcase of our finest singing talent after the success of our first gala evening last year.
After drinks and canapés at 7pm in the beautiful surroundings of Emmanuel College Old Library, the gala will begin in the Queen’s Building at 8pm. Students past and present, accompanied by Edward Reeve, will perform operatic ensemble and solo favourites ranging from Handel to Verdi and Mozart to Puccini.
Tickets (£35) are currently available to book on eventbrite.co.uk. The costs of funding this gala have been generously covered by an anonymous donor, ensuring that all money raised go directly to support the work of the society in putting on more first-class productions in future.
The Society is grateful to our president Dame Fiona Reynolds for hosting the evening.
Lent Term 2018
CUOS is delighted to announce our Lent mainshow will be Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore. Performances will be held from the 22nd - 24th February 2018 in West Road Concert Hall, with Edward Reeve as Music Director, and Gareth Mattey as Director. This mainshow forms CUOS' largest project of the academic year, providing an extremely exciting opportunity for students at all stages in their operatic lives to work at a large scale and in a professional hall. The show has now been cast, and more information on this entertaining production will be available soon!
