Christine Rice Mezzo Soprano



The little known Neapolitan composer Tomaso Traetta contributed hugely to the development of not only opera seria, but also to the expansion of the orchestra. He was much influenced by Gluck and Rameau, and the arias chosen from 4 different operas (not heard since the 18th century) harmonize the lyrics with virtuosic music. We are delighted to welcome the exceptional British Mezzo Soprano, Christine Rice to LNM for the first time.

Book Now


In 2015 we performed and recorded a programme of wonderful arias by Handel, Bononcini and Ariosti with the dramatic countertenor, Lawrence Zazzo. We are delight to make our Beaune Festival, France debut with this same programme. Lawrence is a wonderful friend to LNM, and I can’t wait to revisit this thrilling programme with him – especially following our hugely successful performance of Handel’s Orlando last year.
