The sun is shining and that means – for us at least – three things are crawling out from their winter hibernation: opera festivals, the Proms and ice-cream van drivers.

Tickets for this year’s Glyndebourne Festival Opera are already selling fast and now the BBC Proms are about to follow suit. Public booking opens on 16 May, but the full programme was announced earlier today, including the two Proms we’ll be performing this year (see below).

Hopefully we’ll see you in the Royal Albert Hall in a couple of months.


Prom 39: Mozart – The Abduction from the Seraglio
Friday 14 August 

Straight from Glyndebourne, we perform a semi-staged version of the Festival’s Mozart offering for this year, with an international cast led by British soprano Sally Matthews and Lithuanian tenor Edgaras Montvidas.
