I’ve just re-surfaced after a week of intense nervous excitement from rehearsals in Aldeburgh that led up to the first night of ‘The Drummer Boy of Waterloo’ our opera that premiered at Jubilee Hall last weekend. That is the same hall that Benjamin Britten premiered his work..... so no pressure then.
In three weeks our show ‘The Drummer Boy of Waterloo’ premieres in Aldeburgh with Jubilee Opera, at the Jubilee Hall and I have to say I am beginning to feel very excited...
Its actually the weekend of November 7th and 8th.
It was at one of the many social gatherings at BASCA (the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors), when David Stoll was Chairman of the Classical and Jazz Executive and I was sitting on the Songwriters Executive, that we decided we really ‘must write a song together’.
