SIMON AND JONATHAN'S COMEDY SONGBOOK
Simon Butteriss and Jonathan Dove
Long before Jonathan Dove composed operas or Simon Butteriss sang them, they became, almost by accident, a celebrated cabaret duo in London’s glittering Knightsbridge. Now, for one night only, they reunite with an irresistible programme of theatrical anecdotes and well-loved songs by Noel Coward, Franz Lehar, Ivor Novello, Gilbert & Sullivan and more.
Simon Butteriss has sung at La Scala, Milan, played roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company, appeared in sitcoms with French & Saunders and Lenny Henry, performed the G&S patter roles throughout the world and has written and directed for stage, screen and radio.
Guest Festival Director Jonathan Dove’s music has filled opera houses with delighted audiences of all ages on five continents. Few, if any, contemporary composers have so successfully or consistently explored the potential of opera to communicate, to create wonder and to enrich people’s lives.
