The barefoot gypsy in me

There’s something dark and savage in our blood which will out! Barefoot Opera Young Artists Tour, with its strong production values and demanding, genuinely educational rehearsal structure, will tour a nine-singer Carmen this year.  In keeping with its style, the singers learn to be both soloists and ensemble players, and are accompanied by a gypsy band of keyboard, accordion, clarinet and double-bass, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.

The Flaming Galahs at the Beacon, 24 August

Wikipedia tells us that ‘galah’ is another name for the rose-breasted cockatoo; Urban Dictionary explains that a ‘flaming galah is a person who makes a fool of themselves, but isn’t afraid to laugh at themselves when everyone else starts laughing at them.’ In Hastings, The Flaming Galahs are an all-female musical trio consisting of Krysia Mansfield on vocals, Lucy Mulgan on double bass and vocals, and Lesley Anne Sammons on piano and vocals. HOT reporter Cathy Simpson spent an evening at the Beacon being enthralled and entertained!
