Ionian Singers Bursary

Alexandra is thrilled to join the Ionian singers as a Bursary recipient this autumn. The Ionian Singers is a chamber choir of about 25 singers with a particular focus on less familiar and unjustifiably neglected repertoire both sacred and secular from the 16th century to the present. The next concert will be on 8th December at All Saints Church, West Dulwich. Head to the events page for programme info and more details.

Eugene Onegin

Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose comes to the Arcola for the first time with a new English version of Tchaikovsky’s sweeping opera, Eugene Onegin.

A coming-of-age story, a requiem for lost innocence and a triumphant celebration of hard-won independence, it is told through some of the most glorious vocal music ever written.

This new chamber version transposes the story of Tatyana’s sexual awakening to the early 1960s, a world on the cusp of the women’s liberation movement when new thinking stood up to the old ways.

Infatuation and self-restraint do battle in a well-tailored world of sleek suits and full skirts, with seasonal allusions to the snow-swept Russian landscape of Alexander Pushkin’s original novel.

Alexandra will be playing Solo Soprano Chorus and covering the role of Tatyana. Performances running 22nd November to 23rd December 2017.
