Arts Festival

On Saturday hundreds of people enjoyed the second Sidney Sussex Biennial Arts Festival.

With a wide variety of music, ranging from the premiere of composer Eric Whitacre's new piece, 'Allelulia', to a staging of Benjamin Britten's opera Albert Herring in a sun-drenched Master's Garden, as well as comedy, dance and photography, the festival offered something for everything.

There is still a chance to catch one of the festival's highlights. Cambridge University Opera Society's production of Giovanni Pergolesi's intermezzo La Serva Padrona will be reprised on Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th at 8pm in the College Chapel. Tickets are £6 for adults and £3 for students, and can be purchased on the door.

Directed this year by graduating third year music student Henry Scarlett, the Festival looks set to become a well-established feature of the College's calendar.
