Young opera star Nicholas Moggs Stansted concert
One of the countrys most promising young opera stars is to perform in St Johns Church in Stansted on Sunday (Nov 25) as part of music@stansteds 2018-19 concert series.
Nicholas Mogg, a graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Music, has recently appeared in Don Giovanni, Rosenkavalier and the Threepenny Opera, but is equally at home in the English, French and German song repertoire.
Accompanied by Welsh pianist Jâms Coleman, another RAM graduate, he will be performing numbers by a long list of popular composers.
The first half of their recital will feature songs on the theme of ‘Sleep and dreams’, from Gurney, Quilter, Bridge, Schumann, Schubert, Fauré and Duparc.
After the interval – during which there will be tea and mince pies – Nick and Jâms will perform Vaughan Williams’ great song cycle Songs of Travel, including well-known numbers such as The Vagabond and Whither Must I Wander.
To close, there will be a foretaste of the festive season with Christmas Songs by Peter Cornelius, which include the much-loved Three Kings.
* Tickets for the concert, which begins at 3pm, are £15 for adults, £12 for concessions and free for under-18s. They are available on the door.
