WHILE the orchestral professionals of the future gear up for their Prom (see feature on this page), their vocal counterparts are heading for a season at Sadler's Wells Theatre. From 8 to 12 September, British Youth Opera moves in for a run of Cosi fan tutte and Carmen. But before then they will be out and about during London lunchtimes, with singers taking extracts from both operas to St James's Piccadilly next Friday. The company's orchestra has a concert including Falla's El Amor Brujo at St Martin-in-the- Fields on 18 August, and the two come together outdoors at Broadgate on the 21st, conducted by Timothy Dean.
