    Weʼve raised £1,012 to La Traviata - Opera for the Community

    Methlick, United Kingdom

    Funded on Saturday, 31st December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.



    *Prize worth more than £50

    Your name will be entered into a draw to win 2 'blue seat' tickets on the front row of the bleachers, with a pre-show and interval drink thrown in. The choice of night is yours!

    This will be a major operatic production at the lovely little theatre at Haddo House in Aberdeenshire with a chorus of local people alongside professional soloists, orchestra and production team.

    Haddo House has a 70 year history of similar productions and prides itself in giving local people of all abilities, ages and backgrounds the chance to become involved in opera working alongside professionals.

    They also give students training to become professional singers at the Royal Conservatoire of Music the opportunity to appear in a fully staged production.

    Funding is badly needed to give them this opportunity once again.

    Producer and Chorus master Alice Dennis is due to retire and this is her farewell project for Haddo House Choral & Operatic Society. Every pound she can raise will be very gratefully received.

    La Traviata - by Giuseppi Verdi

    Director Jack Furness
    Conductor - Susannah Wapshott
    Repetiteur - Liz Rossiter
    Chorus director/producer - Alice Dennis

    Violetta - Máire Flavin
    Alfredo - Paul Curievici
    Flora/Anina - Katie Grosset
    Germont - Frank Church

    With members of HHCOS (open to new non-members), the Haddo Voices and students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
