PAST PRODUCTIONS have included many of the best-loved operas in the repertoire, from The Barber Of Seville and The Elixir Of Love to Rigoletto and Carmen. We have also specialised in producing themed evenings of operatic excerpts.

 An Evening In Paris included scenes from La Traviata, La Boheme and more: "operatic evergreens, drawn from operas set in the French capital, created an evening of massive colour and variety, and great popular appeal" (The Herald).

Long Ago And Far Away took audiences on an operatic tour of the ancient world, from the Persia of Handel’s Xerxes to the Rome of Mozart’s La Clemenza Di Tito via - among others - Egypt (Aida) and Carthage (Berlioz’ The Trojans).

A Viennese Whirl brought together pieces with Viennese connections, some from operas first performed in the Austrian capital, such as Mozart's The Magic Flute, Beethoven's Fidelio and even Donizetti's Linda di Chamonix, and others from the world of Viennese operetta including Die Fledermaus and The Merry Widow: "a quartet of enthusiastic and highly competent young singers in an imaginatively prepared sequence" (Edinburgh Evening News)
 

Dying For Love featured those two great operatic themes, Love and Death, in arias and ensembles from operas including Rigoletto, Carmen, Gluck's Orfeo ed Eurydice and Dvorak's Rusalka.
