A Night at the Opera

A Night at the Opera

Spend a night at the opera with the Band of HM Royal Marines Dartmouth. Military bands, since their modern-era inception in the 18th Century, have played transcriptions of overtures and arias for brass and woodwind to entertain the public. Mozart even transcribed his operas for military bands to ensure he received the royalties for them! Under the expert baton of Captain Jon Ridley Dartmouth Band has captured the drama of each work many of which have been made famous in recent years by soloists such as Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti. The tracks are:
1. The Emissary Fanfare, from 'Othello' - Verdi
2. Overture to 'Die Fledermaus' - Strauss
3. O Mio Babbino Caro, from 'Gianni Schicchi' - Puccini
4. Dance Bacchanale, from 'Samson and Delilah' - Saint-Saens
