12. Mélodies on Tour
09 October 2021, 22:00 - 23:00
St Hilda's College
Concluding an astonishing day of French repertoire, we welcome the wonderful rising-star mezzo Adèle Charvet – who has already appeared as an acclaimed Mercédès in Carmen at the Royal Opera House – and well-known pianist Anne le Bozec for a programme that explores Saint-Saëns and his contemporaries, unusually setting texts in English, German and Russian as well as their native French.
This event is an in-person and livestreamed event. Livestreamed performances will be available to watch live in our Digital Concert Hall at the advertised performance time and will be available to watch again and on demand until the end of November.
