Classicalify goes to London


(Catriona Smith sings Zenobia at Southbank and Cristine Rice performs at ENO.)

One of the great joys in life is the British Empire and it's capital... Where can you see so much good opera and listen to so many good singers at the same time? This week Classicalify is heading to London for two performances, Handel's "Radamisto" at ENO and the Opera Rara concert of Rossini's "Aureliano in Palmira" at Southbank. ENO's Handel productions tend to be among the best in the world and always get great reviews, so also "Radamisto". The Guardian gave it four stars. Classicalify is really looking forward to it. You find the review here:


Usually Opera Rara's performances are of very good quality, and it seems they will not disappoint us with this unusual Rossini opera, the cast is very promising:

Gioachino Rossini: Aureliano in Palmira - opera in 2 acts
(Concert performance in Italian with English surtitles)

Catriona Smith - Zenobia
