Please note: Unfortunately, Majella Cullagh, who was to have sung the role of Mathilde, has had to withdraw for family reasons. Her place will be taken by the Italian soprano Patrizia Biccirè, who has worked with many leading conductors and has sung at opera houses throughout Europe. She is known to London audiences from her Covent Garden roles as Oscar in Un ballo in maschera and Serpetta in La finta giardiniera. COG is delighted that she has agreed to sing this role at such short notice.
Of course we will be there, so later we can tell you if the change was to our liking!
