PuzzlePiece Opera

This ensemble of Trinity Laban student singers filled the chapel of Greenwich’s Old Royal Naval College with joy as they performed what amounted to a rundown of opera’s greatest hits, with extracts from Mozart, Verdi, Bizet, Leoncavallo, Britten, Beethoven, Strauss and Bernstein. For me, the highlights were tenor Harry Kersley singing O Colombina from Pagliacci, Helen Rotchell’s electrifying take on Habanera from Carmen and the ensemble’s gorgeous version of Old Joe Has Gone Fishing from Peter Grimes. Bis!
