A Night at the Opera

Saturday 18 May, 7:30pm
The Magic of Mozart

Songs and scenes from Mozart’s most celebrated operas will guarantee a night to remember. Music at King Charles offers sequences and complete scenes from Don Giovanni, The Magic Flute and The Magic of Figaro, brought to life by the vocal talents of Kate Semmens and Giles Davies with the piano accompaniment of Anthony Zerpa-Falcon: All for less than the price of a train ticket to London.

Soprano Kate Semmens from Marden is a soloist with many leading groups and opera companies, and sings with some of the UK's finest choirs. "The clarity and charm of Kate Semmens' soprano was disarming," said Opera Magazine.

Giles Davies studied at the Purcell School of Music and has since performed and recorded a huge variety of leading roles in choral and operatic works to critical acclaim. Much in demand on stage and screen for his characterful performances, beautiful tone and diction, Giles relishes any opportunity to perform Mozart’s operas.

International prize-winning Pianist Anthony Zerpa-Falcon has performed with, among others, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Liverpool Philharmonic, and has played venues from the Wigmore Hall in London to the Accademia Giuseppe Verdi in Milan, the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, and even the Concert Hall of the Forbidden City in Beijing. He is accompanist for the Tunbridge Wells Choral Society.

Tickets: £10 in advance (£12.50 on the door) from Hall's Bookshop or email kcmconcerts@blueyonder.co.uk
