Alison Place began her singing career with the Monteverdi Choir, BBC Singers, Taverner Consort, London Sinfonietta Voices, Group Vocal de France and the Gesualdo Consort, often featuring as a soloist. Her first work in opera came when The Sixteen provided a chorus for the Aix-en-Provence Festival, leading to further work as chorus member, soloist and understudy with Lyon Opera and at Glyndebourne. She has sung as an Extra Chorister for the Royal Opera House for 25 years and was cast as Mrs. Slammekin in “The Beggar’s Opera” at the Linbury Theatre. In this lecture-recital, Alison describes her experience of a career in various opera choruses, with light-hearted anecdotage and more serious descriptions of logistics.

The lecture-recital begins with a substantial buffet lunch (please inform us of any dietary requirements when booking).

Tickets: £20 (including buffet lunch)
