Flute's sublime music and triumphant opening night in 1791.

the shadowy forces of Freemasonry. And the composer, Mozart,
fears he is being poisoned. A delight for opera connoisseurs
and new comers alike. Merry Opera is a registered charity

time to provide a training ground for up-and-coming
professionals of any age and nationality.

£8) from http://waterloofestival2013sbs.eventbrite.co.uk
St John's resident orchestra – Southbank Sinfonia - opens
the Waterloo Festival with a programme including two major
works which bookended the Second World War. Sergei Prokofiev
struggled against Stalin's regime to write the music that he
wanted. In his dazzling second Violin Concerto of 1935, he
found his true voice: a simple, uplifting song of hope in a
doomed society. Written in the final months of the war in
1945, Richard Strauss' 'Metamorphosen' for 23 solo strings
paints a heartbreaking portrait of a world forever changed
by war.

apparent emptiness of the flat horizon, which 'mocks the
steady running of the hour, and, if it grieves, grieves
richlier than here' (Wilfred Owen). The Kreutzer Quartet is
joined by clarinet player Linda Merrick and pianist Zubin
Kanga in performing Giacinto Scelsi's duo for two violins
Arc-en-ciel (rainbow); the UK première of Michael Hersch's
Images from a Closed Ward; David Gorton's piano quintet

UNKNOWN WARRIORS: READINGS BY THE NATIONAL THEATRE
Monday 1 July
11am at St John's Waterloo, 73 Waterloo Road; £12 (conc £8)
from http://wf2013-uw.eventbrite.co.uk
In a programme of readings from poems, plays, letters and
blogs, National Theatre actors reflect the new reality of
warfare. "The warring nations are engaged, not only
soldiers, but men, women and children. The fronts are
everywhere. The trenches are dug in the towns and streets.
The front lines run through the factories." When Churchill
said this, in 1940, he was anticipating the unfamiliar
horrors to come. Seventy years on, the community is often at
the heart of a war zone, and the hallmarks of earlier
conflicts – battlegrounds, massed lines of soldiers, even
uniforms – are almost a thing of the past. Compiled and
directed by Jonathan Humphreys
