ONE of the country’s most sought after baritones is joining Orchestra of the Swan for an evening of mystery and intrigue.
Roderick Williams, whose opera engagements have included major leading roles at the Royal Opera House, will take to the stage during ‘Enigma – An English Mystery’.
The musical feast, taking place at Warwick Hall in January will includes Elgar’s most well-known piece Enigma Variations, Warlock’s Capriol Suite and Walton’s Two Pieces from Henry V.
Roderick will be performing Vaughan Williams’s Five Mystical Songs alongside his own piece, Corona commissioned during 2019 for Oxford-based string ensemble ‘Corona Strings’.
Last year it was announced that Orchestra of the Swan had become the first professional orchestra in residence at Warwick School, which houses a purpose-built concert hall with enhanced acoustics. The partnership aims to benefit local state schools in the area, as well as the pupils of Warwick Schools Foundation, by creating a centre of musical excellence in Warwickshire.
‘Enigma – an English Mystery’ is on January 12 at 7:30pm. Tickets, costing £15 and £5 for children under 16, are available from bridgehousetheatre.co.uk
