Exeter Northcott Theatre

The last major composition written by the Italian composer Rossini, his Petite Messe solonnelle, will be performed by Exeter Philharmonic Choir in June as part of its summer concert at the Northcott Theatre - a performance combining musical drama and colourful, memorable tunes.

Rossini’s Mass is a work of contrast and intensity, written five years before his death in Paris 151 years ago. Despite its title, it is neither ‘small’ nor ‘solemn’ but reflects the great talent which saw Rossini produce 39 operas in his lifetime.
