We spent an enjoyable afternoon at the Sterts Amphitheatre where a very appreciative audience enjoyed our varied programme, which included opera and operetta highlights (L'Elisir d'Amore, Cosi fan Tutte, Die Fledermaus, Le nozze di Figaro, Tales of Hofmann, Madama Butterfly, La Traviata, Rusalka, Rinaldo and Pirates of Penzance) and lighter items from musicals (Les Miserables and The Boyfriend) with some Gershwin and Jerome Kern thrown in for extra frivolity, all expertly accompanied by Paul Drayton. Becky Scamp delighted us with her hilarious performance of "I want to sing in opera" as did Kay Deeming and Cheryl Brendish with their 'alternative' Lakme duet.
On Saturday and Sunday 11th & 12th July Duchy Opera will be performing at

Let your summer evening thrill to the sound of the opera in this sparkling programme of popular arias, ensembles and choruses. Drama and passion, frolics and fun; let this uplifting music refresh your senses as Duchy Opera brings you a Summer Serenade. Performance starts at 7:30pm.
