SEALL: Inner Sound Youth Production of Purcell’s ‘Dido and Aeneas’
February 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Under the leadership of Anne Lampard, Skye’s young semi-professional youth group present the first opera of the English Baroque composer Henry Purcell. This is based on the story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the Prince of Troy, Aeneas, with on a libretto by Nahum Tate and first performed in 1689.
Inner Sound is a group of enthusiastic and energetic folk who love getting together to indulge in their passion for singing. Most of the members come from Skye and Lochalsh, although there are a few who travel from as far as Inverness to join in the fun.
Inner Sound’s founder, Anne Lampard, has had many years of successful teaching, particularly at the Junior Royal Academy of Music in London, at which she gained invaluable experience at getting the best out of each one of her students, and making it fun in the process! In recognition for her services to music Anne was awarded an MBE in 2015.
This is the second production with the cast drawn entirely from our younger members.
