Out of Darkness into Light

Although Coronavirus has silenced and darkened our theatre, The Grange Festival Community chorus has found another platform on which to perform.

Here is a hint of what has been happening during lockdown with our community opera, The Monster in the Maze. As you will see and hear, singers of all ages have come together not only from Hampshire, but also from Longborough Festival Opera and Dutch National Opera. They have followed online workshops and learnt a section of the opera at home.

A rather recognisable voice opens and is joined by Yvonne Howard (mezzo-soprano), Xavier Hetherington (tenor), James Longford (piano) and the whole international chorus. Please watch as they bring Jonathan Dove’s opera to life: ‘Out of Darkness into Light’.
