Community Chorus 1

Community Chorus

In 2023 we worked with 12 male voices (six tenors and six baritones) from the local community to participate side by side with the main chorus in the performances of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung.

Five performances were shared between the 12 members.

The Community Chorus will reprise their roles in 2024. To find out more about opportunities in future years contact

“although it was challenging, it was made very enjoyable by the way everyone from Longborough went out of their way to help us and the friendly welcome we were given… we felt fully integrated with the whole production.”
