Past Events

Riders To The Sea – Vaughan-Williams

Life is short. Life is beautiful. Cherish what we have. 

Saturday 14th June, 2014. 7.30pm St George’s Church, Kemp Town, Brighton. Tickets £10 |Concession £8.50

Our first venture is Riders to the Sea; a play by JM Synge, set as an opera by Ralph  Vaughan Williams. As this is a short work, we have included some songs to further illustrate the characters the opera by composers including Butterworth, Previn, Hegge, Gurney and Quilter. Any queries, please do not hesitate to email us.


This will be the production in its most minimal form.  From this seed performance we hope to develop our concepts to include possible community involvement in the chorus and orchestral parts. We hope to be able to use digital media, embodying the sea which is so implicit in the score. Always, we want to do our best by the composer and dramatist in the story they wish to tell.
