This year, I will be part of the Buxton International Roadshow. Please find more info about the roadshow below.
Stars more used to singing in the world’s leading opera houses will be performing in a village hall near you, as Buxton International Festival hits the road!
The BIF Roadshow is the perfect place to dip your toe in opera, music and books in a friendly, fun and welcoming atmosphere.
Our bite-sized, hour long performance will include musicians from the Northern Chamber Orchestra accompanying young operatic stars of the future from the Royal Northern College of Music. Together, they’ll present favourites from our 2019 programme including Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals, a gorgeous selection of arias, and we’ll even have a right knees-up as we play the Can-Can from Orpheus in the Underworld.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Peak District, there’s so much more to Buxton International Festival with guided town walks, cooking demonstrations, books, music and jazz.
So join us this March as we travel the length and breadth of Derbyshire to bring you a flavour of our summer festival, which runs from 5 – 21 July 2019.
