INTERNATIONAL opera stars Graeme Danby and Valerie Reid are to perform a special concert at the Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond next month in aid of a local children’s charity.

Midsummer Music will take place on Saturday, 7 June at 7.30pm and celebrates the wit and musical talents of artists such as Tom Lehrer, Noel Coward, Flanders and Swann and Gilbert and Sullivan.

The event will raise funds for We Can Dance – a charity that supports music and dance projects for children with special educational needs.

Mr Danby has a long association with English National Opera and is regularly heard at Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne Festival, Teatro de Liceau in Barcelona and recently at La Scala, Milano.

Ms Reid has sung with English National Opera and Scottish Opera and given performances at concerts all over the world, including St Petersburg, Monte Carlo, Geneva, Salzburg, Turin, Canada and Hong Kong.

Tickets for Midsummer Music cost from £7 to £20 and are available from the box office on 01748-825252 or by visiting georgiantheatreroyal.co.uk.
