Welcome to HVO
the Hutt Valley's own orchestra.
Next concert: Tales from Arabian Nights.
Saturday April 5th 7pm
St James Church Woburn Rd, Lower Huttincluding Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe
and soloist – violinist Blythe Press
There are two pieces in this concert. The first is Prokofiev's Montagues and Capulets. These are the two warring families whose conflict lead to the tragedy of the doomed lovers in Shakepeare's play. Members of the BCTT will enact (from their current Romeo and Juliet production) fragments of theatre to set the scene.
Scheherazade is the narrator of the 1001 Arabian Nights. Rimsky-Korsakov wrote a suite inspired by these tales. It has some aspects of a concerto in that it requires an outstanding violin soloist. For that we welcome back Blythe Press who was so impressive last year. BCTT will also be narrating enough of the tales to understand what the music is about.
