Der Rosenkavalier - Final Trio, Act III 

"The Marschallin has discovered that her young lover, Octavian, has fallen in love with Sophie. Sophie was engaged to the Marschallin’s cousin, the odious Baron Ochs, but thanks to an elaborate trick Octavian has demonstrated to Sophie’s father, Faninal, that Ochs is not a suitable husband for his daughter. Only the Marschallin now stands in the way of Octavian and Sophie’s happiness. While Octavian hesitates between the two women, the Marschallin realises that the time has come for her to give him up. She questions Sophie and gently pushes the two young people together. Overwhelmed with emotion, the Marschallin leaves and Octavian and Sophie rush into each other’s arms." (James Hurley, 2019).

Conductor - Robert Bottriell, Répétiteur - Kelvin Lim, Marschallin - Olga Argo, Octavian - Rachel Maby, Sophie - Anna Marmion, Faninal - Yanou Pauwels.

 

Review - Svadba at the Queen's House, 2019

 

'Ana Sokolović’s Svadba, staged in the acoustically glorious great hall of the Queen’s House, is about a bride-to-be, Milica, and five friends enjoying a prenuptial evening of ritual, dance, song, celebration, rivalry, friendship and - most important of all – solidarity and sisterhood.

In the matinee performance I saw, Sofia Celenza was magnificent as Milica and was wonderfully supported by Olga Argo as Zora and other artists who perfectly captured the changing moods of the participants.'

Miles Hedley, The Greenwich Visitor

A brilliant contemporary opera written by a woman with an all-female cast – there could be no better way to round off Trinity Laban’s triumphant Venus Blazing season, a year-long programme of concerts in which at least half the works were by women composers.

Ana Sokolović’s Svadba, staged in the acoustically glorious great hall of the Queen’s House, is about a bride-to-be, Milica, and five friends enjoying a prenuptial evening of ritual, dance, song, celebration, rivalry, friendship and - most important of all – solidarity and sisterhood...
