    Opera Foundry returns to Guildford, with a rich and enticing programme, exploring the music of these three great composers - and the particular influence of Mozart. Some of the most beautiful music ever written for the opera house, or indeed anywhere else, and all gathered together in one place.

    After the success of our French and German Language Series Concerts in 2017, Opera Foundry returns to Guildford, with a fresh vibrant programme, to start the 2018 Great Composers Series, exploring the music and evolution of these three great opera composers - Presented by Artistic Director, Richard Cartmale, with Pianist Sarah Quantrell and fourteen amazing soloists in an intimate setting, where you may experience the thrill of genuine high-calibre opera singing far closer than in an opera-house.
