it’s not over till the fat ladies sing

The Big Screen is doing high culture this summer (a counterpoint to the beach ?) with three live showings of opera and ballet. The entertainment isn’t only on-screen as BBC WM’s Jenny Jones is compering live music at each.

The first one up is this Thursday (31st) – Swan Lake by the Royal Ballet, which is preceded by:

6.30 Harmon8, students from the Conservatoire
17.15 Crossroad Collision – multicultural urban jazz
18.00 The Azaad Dhol Drummers – dhol drumming (unsurprisingly)
18.45 The Kevin Ashcroft Band – blues, ballads & rock n roll

Opera follow on 13th June and 3rd July, and then it’s over.
