For those who are unfamiliar with opera, as well as for its most ardent followers, the concert performance at St Mary's Church on Sunday 3rd November promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable musical evening.

We are bringing the glamour of the Royal Opera House to Haddenham for one night only!

The concert will include highlights of the major operas from Mozart to Puccini, including music from The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro, Carmen, La Traviata and La Bohème.

The performers are from Haddenham and surrounding villages — including Sophie Bevan MBE acclaimed operatic Soprano performing regularly at the Royal Opera House and the Met. Dominic Bevan, our very own tenor from Haddenham, graduate of the Royal College of Music most recently performing at The Grange Festival and The Wigmore Hall. Sam, Anastasia and Howard bring a wealth of experience and talent to Haddenham, accompanied by the wonderful Miles Lallemant on the piano.

Tickets include a glass of bubbly and canapés during the interval and are available from Blooming Fruity, online at ticketsource.co.uk/operaandfizz or on the door..

Join us for this unforgettable evening. All profits to the Haddenham Syrian Family Project.
