A Night at the Opera by Candlelight

A Night at the Opera by Candlelight

Friday 17 May, 7:30pm–9:45pm, with an interval of 20 minutes, at Exeter Cathedral. Doors open at 6:45pm.

London Concertante presents a sensational evening at the opera with an array of the finest opera arias and overtures, performing works from Puccini, Verdi, Rossini and Mozart – some of the best from Madame Butterfly, Turandot, Tosca, The Barber of Seville, Carmen, Così fan tutti and so much more.

Experience the thrill, drama and romance of some of opera’s most beloved and immersive stories, imagined by London Concertante and some of the UK’s greatest opera singers, performed by candlelight inside Exeter Cathedral.

Feel the intensity of Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” from the epic opera Turandot, as its powerful notes sweep over you. Delight in the delicate harmonies of Delibes’ “Flower Duet” from Lakme, a floral celebration of soprano voices. Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro overture” sets the tone for comedic intrigue, leading seamlessly to the emotional depth of Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” from Gianni Schicchi.

The evening continues with the lively overture from Rossini’s Barber of Seville, followed by Verdi’s spirited “La donna e mobile” from Rigoletto. Experience the seductive allure of Bizet’s Habanera from Carmen before being serenaded by Puccini’s heartrending arias, “Un Bel Di Vedremo” from Madame Butterfly and “E Lucevan le Stelle” from Tosca.

Join London Concertante for a night where each piece is a precious gem, meticulously chosen to showcase the depth and diversity of the operatic experience. Let the melodies resonate in your heart and soul, as the performers transport you to a world of classical music, passion, drama, and exquisite musicality.
