January 2007


My chamber orchestra arrangement of Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream music is having another outing on June 24th this year. The performance will be at Stanley Hall Opera, the summer festival I have been musical director of since it started in 2001. This time I am going to work with an actor and singer who will together tell the whole story of the Dream using Shakespeare's text.

Ruth Paton will again be creating a show based on the opera for local primary schoolchildren.
