Following the great success and popularity of the RTWSO’s first ever Opera Gala in the 2016/17 season, we are very pleased to present our second Opera Gala as part of the 2019/20 season.
Our programme will be entirely new and four top class opera singers will treat us to some of the most memorable moments and thrilling highlights from a selection of the best known operas by Verdi, Puccini, Mozart, Bizet, Rossini and others. Orchestral overtures, dramatic arias, quartets, intermezzos and beautiful duets are all here in what promises to be a wonderful concert of opera for all!
