Season’s Greetings from Hatstand Opera

Season’s Greetings, an all-singing, cracker-snapping, party-going, panto-mimic, Christmas special presented in Hatstand’s unique informal and fun style – with just a sprinkling of carols!

Christmas is all about celebration, so this festive show starts with operatic parties, and all the goings on that a little Christmas spirit liberates! The champagne flows, and romance is in the air….

Then, a celebration of the true meaning of Christmas, with song and oratorio, from the familiar such as Handel’s Messiah to charming songs by composers such as Michael Head.

The second half opens with a panto theme (oh yes it does!), opera-style, with elegant princes, ugly sisters and ruthless pirates…

Finally, a rousing singing finale of songs; carols, part songs and the just plain silly songs that the season seems to invoke.

Audience Member, St Martin-in-the-Fields, London[/blockquote]

A feast for all the family, full of fun and festive music, and all in the unique, informal style that have made Hatstand Opera so popular with UK audiences.
