Friend of Winning Review, JR, writes in “Another hidden venue you may find fascinating is the cavernous disused ‘Tunnel Shaft/Chamber’ Beneath Brunel’s Museum at Rotherhithe, it’s where Queen Victoria Military Band performed on the Opening ceremony to this the World’s First underwater Tunnel back in 1843.  “

Here are some of the upcoming events:

Hieronymus in the Thames Tunnel Shaft:

 Saturday 11 April 2015 7.30pm

Join Hieronymus for their London debut, an exciting performance of J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion. Using a lean, eighteen-piece ensemble, this promises to be an intimate and intense account of Bach’s most dramatic passion setting, played out in the unique underground surroundings of the Thames Tunnel Shaft at the Brunel Museum

Opera in the Shaft:

 Thursday 16 & Friday 17 April 2015

The Pop Up Opera Company will perform Mozart’s comedy Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) Mozart’s comedy about two young men, Belmonte and Pedrillo, attempting to rescue their lovers Konstanze and Blonde from an Ottoman harem. All kinds of high jinks and mishaps occur as they don disguises, make merry with the servants and sing an ode to Bacchus god of wine, in an attempt to save their beloveds. The music contains some of Mozart’s most spectacular and virtuoso arias, and is richly embroidered with his interpretation of Turkish music. An opulent and highly entertaining treat

The Gallery Singers in the Thames Tunnel Shaft: Saturday 25 April 2015

Following their wonderful concerts in 2013 and 2014, the Gallery Singers return to the Thames Tunnel Shaft to sing a programme including “Lux Aeterna” by Morten Lauridsen. The Gallery Singers are a group of 15-20 singers who rehearse at the Institute of Education, Russell Square.  You can check out their website for further information about the group
