On the 9th, 10th and 12th May, over 120 students of COV (the Conservatoire of West Vaud) will perform “Marco Polo and the Princess of China”. This is a family friendly opera, at just one hour and quarter long, it’s a great introduction for all ages to the world of opera, live orchestral music, fabulous costumes and scenery.
Living in Nyon recently spoke to Anastase Démétriadès, the director of the school who said; “This is a massive opportunity for all the students to get together and perform. The youngest member is 6 years old, there are adult students too, three choirs involved, 45 in the orchestra alone, it’s a big event! It is also a good opportunity to see the work of this prestigious music school”.
