Nothing beats the thrill of hearing an opera singer up close and the power of the human voice will astound your guests. There is so much repertoire to choose from; passionate arias, romantic love duets, and powerful ensembles. Combine this with humour and audience interaction and you are on to a winner! Opera is perfect too for multi-national events and conferences.
Opera is a sophisticated art-form but is essentially an entertainment and can transform an event into something truly memorable for you and your guests. We create programmes that are ideal for existing opera lovers but which will also appeal to newcomers alike.
We will work with you to create the perfect programme and include something for everyone: from the celebrated operas (such as ‘The Marriage of Figaro’, ‘Carmen’, ‘La Traviata’ and ‘Madame Butterfly’), operettas (including the works of Gilbert & Sullivan), and musicals (with hits from the works of Gershwin, Rogers & Hammerstein, Bernstein and Lloyd-Webber).
Accompaniment can range from an orchestra, instrumental ensemble or backing tracks if a piano is not available. The singers can appear in glamorous modern evening dress or in stunning period costume for an added visual impact (Georgian, Regency, Victorian or Edwardian).
Our performances are usually introduced with a few carefully selected words that will bring the arias and ensembles to life for an audience.
London Festival Opera has arranged performances to link with all ranges of events – from a private dinner party for 20 to a large-scale al fresco event for thousands. We perform not only in the UK and Europe but often travel internationally to Hong Kong, India, Barbados and Canada.
We have presented successful opera performances for many leading companies including Goldman Sachs, Brocket Hall, The Goring Hotel, Price Waterhouse, Hermes, Arthur Andersen, Deutsche Bank, AXA, PC World, Bank of New York and BMI Healthcare.
