OPERA MINT CARDIFF

L’enfant et les Sortilèges

Opera Mint is currently engaged in a film version of Ravel’s masterpiece (in English), set to a film with animated images by members of the cast and school students, some with special difficulties.

This will be a collaboration between superb professional musicians and singers, and our own local members, with Music Director Andrew Wilson Dickson, and a film made by Dominic Shakeshaft.

This story, of a child who loses his temper and creates chaos, is a superb comment on the human condiition. We plan to take it around school audiences and encourage an inter-active element!

Opera Mint Summer Concert - 23rd June 2013

Sunday afternoon, 4.30pm at Friends meeting House, George Rd, Edgbaston

• Excerpts from Elijah (semi-staged) • Songs and arias for a summer afternoon! •
• Entry £5 • Rehearsal 3.00 • Big Tea •

This is our summer concert. We thought Elijah bears a dramatic interpretation, so we are taking parts of it and putting it in context. Adam Is singing Elijah, and of course that chimes in with his heritage.
This is an Opera Mint concert, with the funny, the quirky and the courageous all in the melting pot together. If you would like to come and join us for the music and a large tea afterwards, we would be delighted.

Warm up with a fantasy comedy about a family at Christmas where nothing is quite what it seems. Parents don’t seem to behave as parents should, and it all turns into a bit of a nightmare for the kids! Opera Mint’s family show, with many well known songs, and some a bit less familiar: As long as he needs me, The lion sleeps tonight, and Wonderful world, to name but a few!

The cast of professionals and local children and adults is supported by a superb jazz trio, with special guest appearances from Vic Evans, much loved vocalist with the Blue Notes, and Radvic Nekic ,Khan in The TV show The Gladiators. Limited space.
