English Touring Opera
Spring 2014, 13 February – 31 May
Laure will be singing the roles of Hecuba, Queen of Troy in King Priam and Queen of Night in Magic Flute. All dates and venues can be seen on ETO’s website: http://www.englishtouringopera.org.uk
Hecuba and Queen of Night are mythological mothers who value ambition over maternal instincts, with dramatic results, and dramatic music to match. King Priam opened at the ROH Linbury Studio Theatre on 13 February (all performances at the Linbury are sold out) and Magic Flute opens at the Hackney Empire in March. Both operas will then tour until the end of May.

Thank you so much for your fabulous concert today!
A great, enchanting way to begin the evening! Magical & beautiful!

‘O Brave New World: songs from an enchanted island’, a programme of songs and arias by Thomas Adès, Benjamin Britten, Dominick Argento, and Jonathan Dove, interwoven with readings from Shakespeare and W H Auden’s The Sea and the Mirror, was performed at the Canterbury Festival in October 2013, and in January 2014 at St. Pancras Church, London. Excerpts from the programme were presented at the Beaney Museum, Canterbury in December, and at the HOT Club Cabaret, Islington in May.

Perfectly conceived and performed! Sensational!!
Thank you once again for your electrifying performance this afternoon.
