BAMPTON CLASSICAL OPERA 2021 – Christoph Willibald Gluck Paris and Helen
(1770 – 250th anniversary production)
FIRST-EVER LONDON STAGING, ST JOHN’S SMITH SQUARE, FRIDAY 24 SEPTEMBER
‘..a work of shining beauty, an exquisite, at moments rapturous outpouring of romantic lyricism with few parallels in 18th-century opera‘ Max Loppert, Opera Magazine
Following performances at Bampton in July, and Westonbirt School on 30 August, Bampton Classical Opera (click here) will bring their highly-praised production of Gluck’s major work, Paride ed Elena to St John’s Smith Square on 24 September, which will be the first-ever London staging of this opera.
