Petite Messe Solennelle

Masters page 001

Rossini's popular, quirky and absolutely fabulous Petite Messe Solennelle was a true celebration of his career as a composer of Opera Buffa.

Project:Opera's prestigious musical directors - Steve Parker, Angela Pascale and Gergely Kaposi - will collaborate to bring the Mass in its original form, for soloists and chorus, accompanied by 2 pianos and an harmonium, thanks to the opportunity of 2 grand pianos and a pipe organ being available at Newport Minster.

The spellbinding voices of Annalisa Vaughan, Hilary Brooks, Randy Nichol and Ian Wilson-Pope will lead Project:Opera's newly formed chorus, made up of talented amateur singers, musicians and music tutors from across the Isle of Wight and beyond.

Advanced booking is recommended.
