Profile

Outstanding singers’ – THE SUNDAY TIMES

‘Opera as near perfection as you could get it’ – THE SUNDAY EXPRESS

Opera Interludes is one of the world’s leading independent opera companies and has appeared throughout the UK, across Europe and as far afield as Hong Kong, Barbados, India and Canada.

The company brings together established artists from the major British opera companies, including the Royal Opera, English National Opera and Glyndebourne Festival Opera, with exceptional young singers to present highly entertaining opera galas of the very highest calibre.

The company has been chosen to present opera for many VIP occasions including a private performance in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, for the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street, The President of Malta at the Palace in Valletta and for the British Ambassador at the Embassy in Paris. They also performed at a private party for the Spice Girls and sang an operatic version of ‘Wannabe’!

Opera is a sophisticated art form but essentially an ‘entertainment’ and Opera Interludes specialises in programmes of passion and drama, but also of humour, fun and audience interaction. Carmen will serenade the gentlemen in the celebrated ‘Habanera’ and Figaro (‘The Barber of Seville’) will offer a free hair-do during his famous ‘Figaro, Figaro’ aria. As well as solos and ensembles from the great operatic repertoire of Mozart, Bizet, Verdi and Puccini, the company also performs pieces from the world of the operetta, hits from musicals and can even sing an operatic version of a famous pop song such as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

Wonderful costumes are often a feature of our performances for an added visual impact and we have a collection of superb costumes from the 18th century, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian period to choose from.
