Celebrating Mozart

On the eve of Mozarts birthday, the Classical Opera Company make their first appearance at The Marlowe Theatre.

Orchestra founder and conductor Ian Page will present two symphonies one practically unknown, the other one of the pinnacles of the repertoire. Kozeluhs Symphony in G minor is a fully Mozartian magnificent and fiery piece, which was published in 1787 but which is today scarcely known. The second symphony is Mozarts own great Symphony No 40 in G minor, K. 550. The conductors 40th symphony, it is one of the most famous and popular pieces ever written. Marlowe audiences will have the rare opportunity to see it in its original version without clarinets.

In between the symphonies, comes the Countess Almavivas famous Dove sono from Le nozze di Figaro and two concert arias which Mozart wrote for the celebrated Czech soprano Josefa Dusek. The soloist is the award-winning exciting young South African soprano Sarah-Jane Brandon.

Bella Mia Fiamma: A Mozart Birthday Concert is at The Marlowe at 7.30pm on Thursday 26 January. Tickets are priced from 16 to 33.50 (concessions available) and are available from the Box Office on 01227 787787 or online at
