Lewes Road, Haywards Heath

 The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Sussex

Welcomed the return of

The London Opera Group

This was their second visit to us, we were again enthralled by the same singers and equally talented different accompanist.

Their programme was of course dominated by all but two of the 13 now available operas. Included too were  Sullivan’s ‘the Lost Cord’, items from My Fair Lady, Westside Story etc.   

The brief CV of the artists are:-

Victoria Mullet' Soprano

Victoria is currently studying for a Masters degree in Vocal Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance alongside a career as a freelance singing teacher. She was cast in her first Gilbert and Sullivan opera at the age of sixteen and hasn't looked back since, singing lead roles in many of the operas over the years, and was awarded the prize for Best Female Voice at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate in 2017 for her performance as Elsie Maynard.

Helena Condry Mezzo

Helena is a semi-professional mezzo-soprano and (occasionally) entirely professional recruitment consultant. Having attained the dubious achievement of a 'double set' by singing a principal role in every G&S opera, her next role will see her trespassing upon new territory, playing Luiz in 'The Gondoliers'. However, for now at least, she'll try and behave herself...

Alex Carpenter Tenor

  1. A music graduate of King's College London and Goldsmiths, University of London, Alex enjoys a busy freelance career as a singer, conductor, accompanist and teacher. Alex has played several G&S tenor roles, winning Best Male Voice in the UniFest section of last year's International G&S Festival in Harrogate, and has conducted three award-winning Festival productions with The New London Opera Group.

Michael Pandazis Baritone

Michael studied at Morley Opera School in Lambeth, under Philip Headlam and Alice Farnham, and studied vocal technique with Aidan Smith and Robert Dean. Michael began singing as a boy, regularly performed in musicals and light opera at school and university, and was a member of Trinity Hall chapel choir in Cambridge.

J Mark Pim Accompanist

Mark has been involved with a wide variety of shows since he got the bug in his teens. On stage he has played roles including Colonel Calverley (Patience), Dick Dauntless (Ruddigore), The Duke of Plaza Toro (The Gondoliers), Sir Marmaduke (The Sorcerer) and Francis Lockwood (Betty Blue Eyes). Off stage credits include: Tomorrow Morning (Rosemary Branch, musical director); The Pirates of Penzance (director), The Mikado (musical director), Kaleidoshow (concept, arrangements and musical director), You Can't Stop the Beat (musical director); Iolanthe (director); HMS Pinafore (musical director), She Loves Me (musical director) and My Fair Lady (musical director).
