[blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”left”]”Calling it “Golden Moments from Opera” was selling yourselves way too short – the whole programme was full of golden triumph from start to finish.

It was an absolute tour de force, made so as much by your brilliant introductions, as by the actual singing itself.”

The perfect show for opera newbies!
This show is a fun, easy way intro into opera for those new to live opera or classical music, since it includes items used in adverts, films, TV series and more.

At Hatstand Opera, we say our shows are like the weather; if you don’t like what we are singing now, wait five minutes and it will change!

No need for subtitles, when compere and mezzo Kirsty Young introduces who singing what, when, and most importantly, why.

Great for opera buffs too
Some extracts are sung in English so it’s not a wall-to-wall language lesson, and we include at least two popular ‘pot-boilers’ that everyone will recognise, plus a couple of unusual or rare items for the opera buffs.
