The Oysters of Opera – Opera Singers | UK
The Oysters of Opera will help you make a success of any party. They can arrive with orchestral backing tracks if a piano is not available, and can make their performance as formal or as informal as you require. Guests are delighted not only by the beauty of the singing, but by the fun they can bring to an event. They can drift through a crowd, stopping to serenade the odd guest. To hear an opera singer at such close range is an unforgettable experience! All the singers are professionally trained opera singers, and they can sing with enough projection to perform without amplification at most small events.
Their real skill is treading the fine line between having fun and making people feel uncomfortable. Years of party experience have given them the rare ability to pick the right person to serenade, grab the guest who is willing to get up and waltz with a singer, and to spot the guest who just wants to sit quietly and listen to the arias.
The Oysters of Opera have a large repertoire. Depending on whether you have one, two or three singers, or girls or boys, the repertoire can include the following:
O Mio Babbino Caro – Puccini
Nessun Dorma – Puccini
Habanera – Bizet
Summertime – Gershwin
The Flower Duet – Delibes
Brindisi – Verdi
A great combination would be two girls and a boy in order to have some fabulous female duets, male/female duets and Nessun Dorma and O Mio Babbino Caro.
The Oysters of Opera will sing acoustically, with their backing tracks being played through your party sound system, or their own small, portable, battery operated system. For larger venues, a PA system and body microphones will be required.
Standard Length of Performance:
The Oysters of Opera usually perform 2 x 20 minute sets.
