Upcoming performance at the Bristol Proms

Following her performance as Dido in Dido and Aeneas (Bristol Proms 2014), sensational South African soprano Pumeza is back, this time reflecting on her life, her passions and her music with long-time collaborator and musical provocateur Charles Hazlewood.

Accompanied by Charles’ ensemble of sixteen musicians, Pumeza will present her favourite musical repertoire, including songs from the South African Mysteries, Miriam Mikeba, Bizet, Faure & Puccini. Specially-selected images from photographer Jurgen Shadeberg will be projected on stage throughout the evening, documenting the individuals and environments that have influenced Pumeza’s life.
