'Sounds of Suffolk'. What do you hear when someone says that to you?
Is it bird song, is it the sound of the trees or the sound of the sea. Is it the church bells or the whistle of a train, or a distant tractor working in the field. Maybe it's music or poetry or is it the sound of school children in the playground.
We asked our Deben Radio volunteers what sounds of Suffolk meant to them. And here are their thoughts.
Deben Radio is delighted to share a special collaboration between BBC Radio Suffolk including two other community radio stations in the Suffolk county, Blythe Valley Community Radio and ICR-Ipswich.
The Deben Radio team would like to thank our volunteers who has been involved with the six minute contribution we compiled which has received extremely positive feedback. A great effort and much fun...
The Marriage of Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro) is set in Count Almaviva's castle in Seville in the late 18th Century.
The whole story takes place in one day in the palace of the Count Almaviva in Seville in Spain. Rosina is the Countess. Her husband, the Count, wants to make love to Susanna, who is about to be married to her true love, Figaro, the Count's servant. The Countess has an page boy, Cherubino, who looks after her. Cherubino, however, is starting to fall in love with the Countess. The Count notices this and he tries to get rid of Cherubino by giving him the job of officer's commission in his own army. Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess plan together to embarrass the Count and show how he has being trying to get the attentions of Susanna. Meanwhile Figaro has an argument with Bartolo and Marcellina, which ends when it is shown that he is their son. At night, all these people find themselves in the palace grounds. There is a lot of humour in which people do not recognize one another, thinking they are someone different. In the end it is shown that the Count has been unfaithful and he has to ask his wife to forgive him.
