Apart from our normal galas in 2013 we are offering with our sister company Regents Opera tailor made performances of La Traviata and Carmen.
Since its inception in 1993 Opera a la Carte has established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting and original chamber opera companies.
Its founder and director, Nicholas Heath, has used his extensive musical and performing experience as well as his knowledge of the established talents and rising stars at Covent Garden and ENO to create a flexible company equally at home with cabaret and full scale opera seria.
Always entirely faithful to the spirit of opera and each work, the musical and artistic directors adapt the score working closely with the singers and other instrumentalists; an accordion for the tango Barber of Seville which was awarded 5 star critic choice in the Times, wind quartet for Mozart, string quartet for Verdi, and organ and percussion for Puccini. Equally at home performing at corporate, public or intimate private occasions, the company prides itself on its personal style, flexibility and ability to appeal to an ever expanding audience.
Their flair and enthusiasm has provoked great critical acclaim … ‘Dare we say, better than Glyndebourne…’
