Walking through the streets of the Old City in Jerusalem, the senses are overwhelmed by sounds, smells and sights. The music you hear falls into one of two categories – call to prayer, or call to stall.
The call to prayer and the singing of the Koran are amplified, echoing around the alleyways numerous times throughout the day. CD stalls play arabian music, luring you to their wares whilst other sellers shout of their goods, adding to the cacophony.
The water and the mountains surrounding the sea create a natural amphitheatre: the music played by the children on the boat can still be heard clearly, despite them reaching the other side of the sea.
It’s no wonder Jesus chose to speak from the middle of this sea…the best of natural acoustics.

“SING is a brand new singing experience geared toward total beginners and group singers who want to feel more confident singing alone. Conducted in central London, these classes are designed to take you to the next level with your singing and give you an outlet to experience the thrill of performing in a nurturing environment. There is no need to audition or read music, and whether you are a proficient singer or need a bucket to hold your tune, SING will be an inspiration for you.”
We’ve come across the Merry Opera team before. Their Magic Flute, a great dove-tailing of narratives between Schikaneder’s plot and Mozart’s life, was a visual and aural delight. Great performances from tenor Lawrence Olsworth-Peter and mezzo Gemma Morsley.
MO’s staged Messiah was once again very well sung – with thought provoking staging and dress. As characters from every walk of life surrounded us before the show had even begun: a stressed out business man, a pious church cleaner, a girl from the council estate; we knew we were in for something a little different.
Roderick Morris‘ “He was despised and rejected by men” was particularly poignant. Beautifully sung, the whole cast, now dressed in black, turned their backs to Morris, a reminder of how each one of us, whether a business man, a church lady, or a young girl has turned our backs to Jesus.
The final transformation to white (seen above) was a vivid reminder of what the crucifixion accomplished: sin being taken away, paid for on the cross so God no longer sees us covered in sin, but pure white.
Fabulous organist Chad Kelly deserves mention: he made the never-ending baroque lines flow with ease alongside astonishing accuracy. Mezzo Kate Symonds-Joy, the ‘girl from the council estate’ also stood out, singing with depth and passion. Quite a wonderful surprise when the girl in the hoody turned around and showed us what she was made of!
Rumours abound that more dates are to be added around Autumn 2013. Great news for a great show.
