“La Canterina’ by Joseph Haydn “Trial by Jury” by W.S. Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan

“La Canterina” (The Diva) is a light and lively farce about a mother and daughter navigating their way through the corrupt world of 18th century romance. In “Trial by Jury”, the masters of comic opera, Gilbert and Sullivan, mock the English system of justice and “breech of promise” with melodic glee. Both operas sung in English.
