​Episode 12: Season launch 2024 - and a look ahead to 2025

In this episode we celebrate the upcoming 2024 season at Longborough - a new production of La bohème in the centenary year of Puccini's death, alongside the culmination of our Ring cycle.

With readings and music from some of our brilliant Emerging Artists, we also look ahead at the exciting plans for our 2025 programme, with Longborough's Artistic Director Polly Graham, Music Director Anthony Negus, Executive Director Emily Gottlieb and Chairman Andrew Mosely.

Participants include Sofia Kirwan-Baez (currently studying at the National Opera Studio and making her Longborough debut in 2024), prize-winning baritone Edward Jowle and soprano Fflur Wyn (making her Longborough debut as the Woodbird in our 2024 Ring), accompanied by Susie Allan.

This was recorded at an event for Longborough members, at Compton Verney.
