A feast of Viennese opera and dancing graced Hitchin on Saturday night in aid of Garden House Hospice Care.
The performance by opera company Felici, entitled A Night in Vienna, was a gala affair in which audience and performers alike were transported back in time at the Queen Mother Theatre.
The first act showed Johann Strauss II composing Die Fledermaus, and the second act centred around a Viennese coffeehouse in 1930.
The Letchworth-based hospice was represented at the gala, written and produced by Zoë Jasko, by Lynsey Abbott, Anne Johnstone and Jackie Toofail.
Zoë Jasko said it had been an “incredibly exciting and creative project to work on, with a hugely talented cast”, adding that they were grateful to the Queen Mother Theatre’s support.
