The ships have sailed, the diaries have been cleared and after the success of last year’s Gala, the singers return to present another evening of your favourite arias, duets, and ensembles from the world of opera to Rodgers & Hammerstein, Noel Coward and Ivor Novello. The artists have sung for many of the UK major opera companies including Glyndebourne, Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Opera North, Welsh National Opera and D’Oyly Carte Opera Company, and abroad in Cologne, The Netherlands and Palermo as well as travelling round the world entertaining passengers on cruise ships! In addition a chorus of local singers will join the soloists for a slice of Gilbert & Sullivan.
This very special evening features Yvonne Patrick (Soprano), Louise Crane (Mezzo), Ashley Catling (Tenor), Darren Jones (Baritone) and Lesley-Anne Sammons (Piano).
Before the gala, you can enjoy a spectacular and glamorous opera-themed supper composed and conducted by our Maestro Sarah Thunkshop, served in the foyer at 6.30pm, costing just £12.50. To book your supper, please call Thunkshop in advance on 07957166092. Seats will be reserved for diners.
