In a semi-staged evening of song, opera and poetry, our Samling Academy Singers share some of the treasures that we find and lose on our journey through life – the exciting discoveries of new love, nostalgia for the places we can never return to and the everyday drama of misplaced objects. The programme is directed by Samling Artists Miranda Wright and Leo Nicholson, who will accompany.

I’ve seen earlier cohorts of Samling Academy singers in action and they never cease to amaze me.’ David Whetstone, The QT Online
