Further to the Ovid project that I took part in last March in Oxford , I am looking forward to repeating the concert in Gozo this week. The Oxford Girls’ Choir will give two concerts in the Gozo Mediterranea Festival, one in St George’s Golden Basilica on Tuesday and the Ovid Festival concert on Friday in the Kemplinski Hotel. This will comprise Handel’s Semele interwoven with the movements of Britten’s Six Metamorphoses after Ovid with six dancers drawn from the choir. The performance (conducted by Richard Vendome and directed by Penelope Martin-Smith with choreography by Lucia Boué) proved most effective when it was done in Oxford and it will be exciting to do it one more time.
