Our desire to perform a series of "concert cperas" including a selection of arias by a particular Composer has been extremely successful. Our aim was to introduce Opera to a wider audience by focusing on reduced versions of each opera.
These concert operas also give more of our members an opportunity to sing and participate, especially those members who normally sing in the chorus.
