“An evening of sheer delight!” - The Observer
“An expert communicator of enthusiasm” - The Scotsman
“The idea for a show about the wacky and wonderful world of opera first came to me as I was swinging from a chandelier, 20 feet in the air, as Don Giovanni at the London Coliseum. I have performed and produced a formidable number of operas, in a wide range of situations over the years: in the open-air in Italy, entering on horseback and surrounded by real sheep and in Hong Kong where, with the simultaneous translation of the opera projected on a screen to the side of the stage, the audience looked as if they were watching a tennis match. The experience has thrown up some interesting thoughts and anecdotes and it is a constant joy for me to mingle these with a magical selection of music and to delight both established opera-lovers and nervous newcomers with the glory of opera.”
