During 2020 and 2021 the Rameau Project is being joined by the Opera Company and the Istante Collective to bring to life the original version of Rameau’s third opera, Castor et Pollux (1737). As well as giving the UK premiere of Jonathan’s new edition, the Castor et Pollux: Rising Stars project will provide rare and much-needed opportunities for fine young singers to perform this extraordinary repertoire.
Our journey towards our 2021 performances begins on Saturday 3 October 2020 at Heath Street Baptist Church, Hampstead, when we will be offering a delicious ‘taster’ menu of the best arias and dances from Castor, performed by a mini corona-safe band and two of our Rising Stars, Hilary Cronin and Xavier Hetherington.
This concert is the first step in a year-long project – please join us at the start of our exciting journey!
Saturday 3 October, 6pm and 8pm
