Mary Bevan MBE, internationally acclaimed soprano, brings her multi-award winning friends to serve up a delightful evening of opera classics to be enjoyed from the comfort of your socially distanced picnic rug. This is Mary’s first official engagement since lockdown began.

Mary Bevan MBE – Soprano
Nicky Spence – Tenor (a Samling artist)

Programme highlights include:
Dido’s Lament (Purcell)
The Pearl Fishers Duet (Bizet)
Nessun Dorma (Puccini)

“Mary Bevan’s bewitching Susanna. It was entirely appropriate that the first night should conclude with Bevan receiving this year’s Exceptional Young Talent award from the Critics’ Circle, because the perfection of her singing is allied to a natural dramatic gift.” Independent
