Hurn Court Opera and University Music present recitals and performances, including the finals of a national singing competition for young professionals from various conservatoires.
The Hurn Court Opera Singing Competition was launched in 2018 and provides an important platform for young vocal talent. It also provides a key to future performances with HCO, and offers the chance for emerging artists to develop under the supporting wing of the professionals associated with the company.
Opera Sunday will be taking place at Bournemouth University's Talbot Campus on Sunday 7 July. Please note: some events were originally taking place on Saturday 6 July but this part of the programme has been cancelled.
Tickets: £15 - includes the singing competition semi-finals and finals, plus an audience with Sir Simon Keenlyside.
