New Year’s Eve Operetta Matinée
Friday 31 December 2021
3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
A glittering array of favourite opera and operetta arias to start your New Year’s Eve celebrations performed by the Merry Opera Company.
Merry Opera is a professional opera company that has been touring for the last 10 years. Our singers go on to Glyndebourne, Grange Park, Wexford and young artists’ programmes in Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Freiburg. The leading ladies in our ‘La Traviata’ which we toured to Malaysia in 2012 were snapped up by Wexford and Vienna for that same role. One of our singers won the Bayreuth Wagner prize and has since sung at the Royal Opera House and the Festival Hall. Opera Now magazine wrote: ‘Merry Opera has a nice line in these slightly off-beat touring shows, performing them with charm, energy and wit’. The Daily Telegraph wrote: ‘The future of opera is being seeded here, and it needs nurturing’.
