Five of the best concerts and operas - live and streamed - for the coming week

In the Market for Love

First staged outdoors two months ago, Glyndebourne now takes its production of Offenbach’s farcical one-acter into the opera house. It’s sung in a new English version by Stephen Plaice and directed by Stephen Langridge, with Kate Lindsay as Harry Coe (geddit?) the cook, who falls for the fruit seller Ciboulette, sung by Nardus Williams.
Glyndebourne Opera House, Lewes, 10-25 October, ticketed live performances

Roderick Williams and Friends

The baritone’s friends are mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately and pianist Gary Matthewman; Williams sings a selection from Schubert’s cycle Winterreise, and Whately interpolates songs by Korngold, Mahler, Clara and Robert Schumann, and Ivor Gurney.
Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, 10 October, ticketed live performance

Petite Messe Solenelle

The Wexford Opera festival goes virtual this year and opens with Rossini’s unique late requiem, in a performance conducted by Kenneth Montgomery and dedicated to the memory of the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic. Claudia Boyle, Tara Erraught, Pietro Adaíni and John Molloy are the soloists.
National Opera House, Wexford, 11 October, live performance, streamed online

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic

Joshua Weilerstein replaces the RLPO’s chief conductor Vasily Petrenko for a programme of Rossini (the Silken Ladder overture), Stravinsky (the suite from the ballet Pulcinella) and Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, with Boris Giltburg as the soloist.
Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool, 15 and 18 October, ticketed live performances

Poulenc and Farrenc

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra is concentrating on chamber music this autumn. Their all-French programme pairs Poulenc’s irrepressible Sextet for piano and wind quintet with the best known work by Louise Farrenc, her Nonet for wind and strings.
