1 Dec 2018 - The Nightingale of South Bank at Neston Civic Hall

Published: 8th November 2018 11:22

Little Pixie Productions Present The Nightingale of South Bank - the arias of the versatile soprano Florence Easton.

The Nightingale of South Bank at Neston Civic Hall

Florence Easton was born in 1882 South Bank, Middlesbrough. After training at the Royal Academy at the turn of the 20th century, she went on to become one of our most versatile English opera singers and became known professionally as “The Nightingale of South Bank”.

Working with companies both in England and abroad Florence settled in America after the start of World War 1. In 1918 At the Metropolitan Opera, New York she created the role of Lauretta in the world premiere of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, making her the first soprano ever to sing the famous aria “O Mio Babbino Caro”.

Helena Leonard sings many of Florence’s famous arias from operas including Madame Butterfly, Gianni Schicchi, Aida, Tosca and many more as she tells you the fascinating story about the varied career of Florence Easton, “The Nightingale of South Bank”.

Written by Sarah Nelson Musical Director: Carl Penlington-Williams Originally devised by Rebecca Little and Helena Leonard.

“What an innovative idea to tell the story of Florence Easton’s remarkable life using both narrative & arias from some of her greatest roles sung by Helena."…

“Excellent voice, projection and passion (might have been at Covent Garden)…” “Thank you for introducing me to Florence Easton in such an enchanting way."…

"Neither of us is an opera "buff" and we thoroughly enjoyed tonight's show..."
