Programme Note

Jacopo Foroni’s Cristina, regina di Svezia was the hit of the 2013 Wexford Festival and the winner of the 2014 International Opera Award for Rediscovered Work. Foroni moved to Stockholm from Italy to further his operatic career but died in 1858 during the cholera epidemic at the age of only 34.

The conductor is Andrew Greenwood, who conducted in Wexford. Helena Dix, who scored a huge personal triumph when she appeared in the Wexford performances, sings the title role.

‘Chelsea Opera Group’s three concert performances a year are among London’s most joyful operatic events.’ (Richard Nicholson at Classical Source)

5.45pm: Pre-performance talk – free for ticket holders.
