IMG_4131The summer season of concerts on the Terraces has got off to a good start with another spine-tingling afternoon of ‘Opera by The Sea’ (June 14), featuring singers from the English Studio Opera Soloists, returning for the third successive year. Fine weather for this and the performance from the Dixieland Stompers (June 28), delighted a full audience for both events. We hope for continuing good weather for the Brighton Big Band (July 12th) ADD Vox Beatles (July 26) and Brass Fusion (Aug 9th).

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men returned for the second year to provide an exciting performance of this favourite Shakespeare play. Cross-dressing was no problem to this accomplished all-male cast, but to portray convincing Viola as a girl then masquerading as a man was quite a challenge! The still night in the Kipling Gardens provided the perfect setting for the near capacity audience who were transported back to the Elizabethan era, by the period musical accompaniment and brilliant acting.

IMG_3864The sixth annual Spring Music Festival ended on a high note with the audience in a packed village hall raising the roof with “A policeman’s lot is not a happy one!” in the finale of the Gilbert and Sullivan dinner. It ended another very successful Festival, with a week of wonderfully varied musical events, from Jazz to the Baroque. Celebrities included Claire Martin, the jazz singer, Pam Rhodes in Songs of Praise, and the return of Red Priest to bewitch us with a night of irreverent early music. There were also virtuoso performances with the German Chamber Orchestra, Salih Gevrek, a young Turkish pianist, and the South American Folk group Inca. And in a more informal setting, Herbie Flowers effortlessly entertained diners at the Bistro Gourmand.

The Rottingdean Arts summer programme follows with Open Air Shakespeare in the Kipling Gardens in June, and a series of Sunday concerts on The Terraces, details of which are in the Brochure.
