Effect of the Coronavirus pandemic

Unfortunately, this was one of many performances that was prevented due to the general ban on public gatherings during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.   Details of any eventual reinstatement will be provided in due course.  Fortunately, the DCU's website assures us that the performance is only postponed, not cancelled altogether.


Dundee Choral Union have been in the habit of performing Verdi's choral masterpiece as first choice for a memorable event, such as the Millennium or a landmark in the choir's long history.   On this occasion advantage has been taken of the extended closure, for refurbishment, of the Younger Hall in St Andrews.  Since the St Andrews Chorus for the time being are without a suitable home, they are joining forces with the Dundee choir.  This will be a splendid event, with conductor Derek Clark as usual bringing his orchestra from Scottish Opera.  They play Verdi often, but rarely get a chance to perform this particular piece.

The soloists are also much anticipated. The men, Elgan Llýr Thomas and Dingle Yandell, have recently made particularly strong immpressions with Scottish Opera, while the ladies have also shown that their voices have developed to the point where the Caird Hall acoustic should suit them very nicely indeed.

Tickets £14 (£4 Students and Unemployed).  Accompanied School Pupils Free.
