Oxford-based opera trio Sorelle invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy the show from the comfort of your own home. Introducing their new concert set: “Sorelle from the sitting room”.

Women in opera are so often brushed off as lovesick, weak, or sidekicks. These three sopranos wanted to change that. Sorelle, or ‘sisters’, is an innovative new all-female operatic group created to revitalise the image of the women of opera – the queens, heroines and lovers – and restore them to their rightful place in the public imagination.

With performances from superb sopranos Katie Blackwell, Megan Strachan and Olivia Bell. Accompanied by talented pianist Gwen Mouncher.

The Sorelle trio joined forces after touring with the Oxford-based company Opera Anywhere on their production of Puccini’s all-female Suor Angelica. Following a sold-out debut concert in Nailworth, Sorelle were invited to perform at the Stroud Shakespeare Festival and have enjoyed entertaining audiences in Stroud, Oxford and London since.

 “Sorelle from the sitting room” will be available for a limited time only from 7pm Tuesday 14th July. Premiering first on Facebook facebook.com/TheDoorStroud and then available to watch again from 8:30pm on Youtube.

So don’t miss out on the opportunity to see this fantastic new collection of both classic pieces and some of the hidden gems of women in Opera, add the date to your diary and join the Facebook event today: https://www.facebook.com/events/1490360607835814/

With this concert Sorelle are pleased to be supporting The Door Youth Project (Stroud, Gloucestershire) which is continuing to bring hope to young people and their families during this complicated and confusing time. Your donations will help provide much needed mental health support, positive role models, and safe spaces for those most in need.
