RWCMD: The Bear


by William Walton
Andrii Ganchuk baritone
Helen Stanley mezzo soprano
Blaise Malaba bass

An opera written in Italy by an English composer to a Russian text doesn't sound like a recipe for success, but fifty years on William Walton's The Bear remains an entertaining and popular reminder of the composer's skill and appeal.

Venue: Dora Stoutzker Hall
