Leeds Festival Chorus
Sinfonia of Leeds

The highlight of the evening is a semi-staged performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s uproarious operetta set back in the bad old days when dumping someone could result in a court appearance.  Before it we have a short suite of dances from Britten’s Elizabethan opera Gloriana, the Chorus sings some Victorian part songs and Rebecca Taylor is the soloist in a delightful Haydn keyboard concerto.
