ITS OFFICIAL….Birmingham loves opera!

So we are proud to offer you a chance to join us at MIDLAND OPERA as a singer, an actor or an audience member when we perform this October. YOU’LL LOVE US!

SPRING SERENADE

We’ll be singing the music of West Side Story and Evita, some great Bond film music like Skyfall and enchanting numbers like Pure Imagination. Just as delightful, we’ll be giving you a sneak preview of our Autumn stage presentation, when we sing the beautiful Easter Hymn from Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni, along with the powerful Anvil Chorus and the enigmatic song of the Hebrew Slaves. Come and share our energy, then relax and let our soloists charm you with their lively or dreamy choices. We’re at three centres, so find the one nearest to you and contact us for tickets. We look forward to seeing you there!

Saturday April 2nd at Hall Green Little Theatre
Saturday April 23rd at Streetly Methodist Church
Saturday April 30th at Erdington Six Ways Baptist Church

All the concerts will start at 7.30 pm.


For tickets EMAIL us to place an order , or ring our ticket secretary on 0121 444 6842

SUCCESSFUL SERENADE!

Thanks Hall Green Little Theatre!
The first of our Spring Serenade concerts was a great success and we thank the members of Hall Green Little Theatre for such a warm welcome. What a cosy, comfortable place to perform!
Do have a look at their web site as they have an interesting and varied programme. A great asset to this South Birmingham area.
Our concert programme continues on April 23rd at Streetly Methodist Church.

DRAMA AND BEAUTIFUL SINGING COME TOGETHER
IN OUR AUTUMN DOUBLE BILL

Passion, jealousy, violence, revenge under the hot, dry sun of Sicily and all washed down with plenty of red wine. Does this sound like The Young Montalbano to you? We can’t guarantee Salvo, but make sure you don’t miss our Opera double bill this Autumn, when we present Cavalleria Rusticana, together with Pagliacci, another short, gripping tale of love and death!
