Opera For Private Parties

An opera performance at a private party or special event can inject the special ‘tingle factor’ that only live music can achieve, transforming a party into something magical and truly memorable for your guests. We create opera performances that can link with a dinner in a hotel, a wedding reception in a garden or marquee or an intimate gathering ‘at home’. Opera is about passion and drama, but there are also many lighter moments: Carmen can serenade the guest of honour and give them flowers as she does in the celebrated ‘Habanera’ and Figaro, the ‘Barber of Seville’ and interact with the audience in his famous aria.

A ‘Surprise Start’ can work particularly well at a private party.  Imagine the scenario: your guests are enjoying dinner or a drink when, to their amazement, the waiters burst into singing wonderful opera!  Using surprise is an innovative way to add an extra element to uplift any occasion.  Please see our page on ‘Singing Waiters’ for more details.

Accompaniment can be a solo piano, instrumental ensemble or recorded orchestral backing tracks and the artists can appear in glamorous contemporary evening dress or in period costume to create an added visual impact. The opera performance can be presented at the beginning of the event during a drinks reception, or at the end of the evening as a ‘finale’.  Alternatively, the performance can be linked with a dinner and presented in two or three sections dovetailed between the dinner courses.

Client Reviews

“You really had my guests, including my wife, fooled. The sheer amazement on their faces when your singers (the waiters!) started to sing is something I will never forget. The standing ovation that followed spoke for itself. Thank you so much!”

James S.Following a Birthday Party at a London Club

“I am so glad we went for the singing waiters option. The effect worked so well and set the right element of fun I was keen to establish. The children enjoyed the evening as much as the 90 year olds and many commented on the wide variety of pieces we had – ‘something for everyone’.”

Rebecca A.Following a private Anniversary Party in the country

“As you know, we had a multi-national audience and opera was exactly the right entertainment! The waiters bursting into song appears to have been the highlight of the occasion and I have received many letters commenting on how wonderfully this worked.”

Louisa BarnhamAttache de Presse, Hermes

“Wow! The impact of your opera performance was just what I had wanted for the wedding breakfast. Light and fun, but dramatic and, I have to admit, very moving at times. The serving staff breaking out into wonderful, thrilling opera was exactly the right way to begin.”

Sara F.Following a Wedding Reception
