The Rameau Project is being joined by the Opera Company 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 singers in the UK to perform this extraordinary repertoire.
Our journey towards our 2021 performances began on Saturday 3 October 2020 at Heath Street Baptist Church, Hampstead, where offered 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 our project – please join us at the start of our exciting journey!
Saturday 3 October, 6pm and 8pm
Heath St Baptist Church
