Shackleton's Cat Opera

Shackleton's Cat - Children's Opera

Shackleton's Cat returns in 2018, as part of English Touring Opera's award-winning strand of operas for young people. The opera tells the story of the voyage and destruction of the Endurance 100 years ago, and the subsequent tale of survival against all odds. The opera lasts just over an hour and is created for children aged 7-11 and their families.

Scarlatti Stabat Mater

Conductor Graham Walker

Passiontide has been fertile ground for composers through the ages. Alongside motets from the Renaissance and early 20th centuries, the concert will also feature two significant works, each very much of its time. Domenico Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater (1715) is a masterpiece of the choral repertoire, full of meditation and reflection, but also with drama provided by soloists emerging from the choir. In contrast, but equally powerfully, we will also be singing James Macmillan’s Cantos Sagrados (Sacred Songs, 1989), which combines sacred and secular texts highlighting political repression in South America.
