The producers that brought A Viennese Strauss Gala to The Castle Theatre return to Wellingborough with Magical Mozart by Candlelight this weekend.

This fully-costumed show will immerse audiences in the music of one of the world’s greatest composers, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Beautiful settings, costumes, lighting and candles work alongside the European Baroque Ensemble and soloists to transport audiences back to the opulent days of late 18th century Austria.

The show this Saturday will include excerpts from Mozart’s operas such as The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro and Cosi fan Tutte.

Accompanying these pieces will be sung moments from compositions including his Symphony No.40, Lacrimonsa (Requim D minor) and Eine Kleine Nacht Musik.

Doors open at 7pm, tickets cost £19.50.

Tickets are on sale for The Paul Riley Quintet who headline the venue on Thursday, January 29.

Formed in 2011, saxophonist Riley will be joined by some of the finest young jazz musicians in the UK.

Performing with him will be guitarist Ant Law, pianist Mitch Jones, bassist Matt Ridley and drummer Dave Hamblett. The quintet’s first album, Inner View, reflects Riley’s original and magnetic music and this concert is part of a UK Jazz Services tour.

Doors open at 8pm, tickets cost £12.50.

Fresh from her triumph at the British Blues Awards, the Female Vocalist of the Year Jo Harman takes her soulful sound to The Castle on Saturday, January 31.

Harman is a British singer-songwriter and her work is broadly influenced by blues, gospel, soul, country, rock and other ‘roots’ sensibilities.

Last summer she released a new album, Jo Harman and Company – Live at the Royal Albert Hall, which was recorded by the BBC.

Doors open at 8pm, tickets cost £10.
