    Story

    Such songs I do not have, but let me sing a hymn in honour of the Plague. I wrote this hymn last evening after we had parted. I felt the need, the first in all my life, to write in rhyming lines.

    We are raising funds for a filmed production of A Feast in Time of Plague, an opera by Russian composer César Cui. It's a striking parallel to the current crisis and a thought-provoking, kaleidoscopic display of the pressures and pent-up energy of a plague-ridden society.

    The film includes a cast of 5 soloists, a chorus of 8, and a chamber orchestra of 15 observing current distancing guidelines within a very spacious venue at New Road Baptist Church in the Oxford City Centre. Musical director, Lucia Švecová, has arranged a special reduction of Cui’s score which will enable recording under the circumstances. Behind the scenes is a team made up of of 13 designers, producers, directors, technicians, administrators and fundraisers.

    Filming is due to begin in May 2021 with a premiere in June 2021 on the Oxford Opera Society’s website and YouTube page with the possibility of researching alternative options to broadcast to a wider audience.
