Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama’s David Seligman Opera School presents ‘Albert Herring’

Event Description

It is May Day in Loxford and an unexpected appointment leads to young greengrocer Albert Herring’s disappearance – but how will the villagers react?

Brilliantly scored for small chamber orchestra, Benjamin Britten’s love of parody and caricature is wonderfully captured in this comic opera.
