Cratoule Summer Singing Course

 

After an intense and stimulating week spent singing and feasting in the glorious provincial farmstead of Cratoule, we gave a packed-out performance in the courtyard of the Chateau de Barja of scenes from operas including Strauss' Arabella where I sang the title role and Nicolai's Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor, singing Anne.  The warmth of the people I met, the beauty of the surroundings, plus copious wine out of boxes made a wonderful experience I won't forget!
