Spring Opera Showcase
Saturday 20th May
The Spring Opera Showcase, is a rich variety of semi staged opera scenes and arias – The end product of the Opera Studio – set into context by a compère, to entertain both opera novices and seasoned opera lovers, in equal measure. Suitable for all ages – A great way to introduce younger members of the family to opera and some of the nation’s finest emerging opera singers.
