Neptune (BCO)

A one-act comedy-opera by Malcolm Hill, Neptune had its first full performance in the winter of 2017/18.

On Friday 20th May 2016, Bath Chamber Opera sang a concert version of excerpts from Neptune, with Paul Feldwick singing the title role, Julia Rushworth as a clueless American researcher, Robert Jack as Pluto, and Katharine Adams as his P.A. The performance was at St Swithin’s Church in Bath. Bath Festivals had advertised the group as “Bath Chamber Orchestra” but added the following account of the story:

“Three born-again brothers (through their father’s mouth) are interviewed by a clueless American researcher, while the youngest’s PA/mistress is chased by the eldest as a distraction from fish.”
