From Beethoven to Bizet, from Verdi to Wagner, come and hear some of the greatest overtures, arias and choruses ever composed, and experience the operatic story as never before.

A Night at the Opera, presented by Bristol Symphony Orchestra, the City of Bristol Choir and a quartet of professional operatic soloists, will create its own unique operatic story using the music of the great operatic composers. With over 150 performers this will be an operatic extravaganza the like of which Bristol has never seen before.

Our story will not be logical, operatic tales never are, but the audience will enjoy a journey of great intensity, allowing our performers to share all the most powerful human emotions. Few will avoid a tear or a tingle down the spine during our switchback ride through the world of opera.

The magic of opera lies in the telling of a story. Opera was the original complete art form with musicians and singers combining to act out the story in the most powerful and passionate way possible.

Opera lovers will recognise much familiar music but there will be some less familiar moments too. If you think you don’t like opera, come and try it out – we’re sure you’ll be converted by the end of the evening!

Experience a rare and exciting performance full of mystery, passion and drama!
