Opera Bluffers' Lunch No.25 Another View from the Podium
Thu 23 February 2017, 11:45 – 15:00 GMT
LECTURE & LUNCH followed by coffee with Q&A session
Lecture by conductor Jeremy Carnall: Another View from the Podium
So popular was the talk given by our Music Director Jeremy Carnall last November that our Bluffers demanded he return to continue his fascinating insight into his job as our super-talented music supremo. He brings us more about the way he prepares his operas - musically, mentally and physically - and how he copes with a lifestyle that has taken him from Chethams School in Manchester via the opera house of St Gallen in Switzerland to the grandeur that is the Gewandhaus in Leipzig - sporting one of the greatest orchestral institutions of the world.
11:45 Coffee on arrival at Slepe Green
12:00 Illustrated lecture in the barn followed by a two-course lunch with a glass of wine, with a Q&A session and more coffee to end the afternoon.
Tickets from £24 plus Eventbrite booking fee.
Each ticket price includes a voluntary donation of £10. Although we rely very heavily on your kind donations to carry on bringing you top class opera in Dorset, you are under no obligation to make one.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Slepe Green is on Slepe Farm Lane, just off the south side of the A35 at Slepe. The turning is opposite the road leading to the Bulbury Golf Course. There is plenty of parking around the house - but please DO NOT PARK ON THE VERGES of the lane which is used by heavy farm vehicles all day.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Call the Dorset Opera Festival office 01258 840000 or email us at email@example.com
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
If it is your first Bluffers then it's probably a good idea. But if you forget it don't worry - we'll have a record of your name.
What is the refund policy?
You can cancel up to 7 days before the event. After that we'll have spent money on the catering so, regrettably, we will not be able to give a refund.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
No worries - you can give your ticket to a friend if you cannot come.
Can we cater for special dietary requirements?
Yes. You have an opportunity to request special dietary requirements when booking.
