The Merry Gala Series

Wisley, Camden Town, Hammersmith

A potpourri of popular arias that make you laugh, songs that make you cry and rollicking choruses that make you want to join in. Familiar favourites from operas by Puccini, Verdi, Mozart, Johann Strauss, Gilbert and Sullivan and more, with the odd (and very Merry) surprise thrown in.
