Opera Bespoke’s Singing Waiters and Waitresses perform at Birthday Party Celebration in Cheshire

10th Jul 2011

Our singing waiters show has been in high demand in 2011 as entertainment for private celebrations. Our act brings each event to life, leaving guests with lasting memories and a truly unique experience. It is not every day that you have the opportunity to listen to the country’s top opera singers singing live, close up, especially for you.
Last Saturday, we were invited to provide surprise entertainment for a birthday party celebration in Cheshire. The birthday was a present from a very loving husband to his wife. He wanted operatic entertainment that was sophisticated, unique, fun and above all memorable on this very special occasion.

The venue was in Woore in Cheshire and the whole village was invited to this fabulous celebration.  We always like to find out a bit about the places where we perform - Woore means "boundary" in ancient Celtic and this fits neatly with the fact that it is situated on the boundary with both counties of Cheshire and Staffordshire.  Did you know that the TV comedian Nick Hancock lives in a £1.1m mansion in Woore!
We were not the only act performing that evening.  Later on that night guests would be entertained by The Drifters – the American R&B band who gave us hits such as “There Goes My Baby” and “Some Kind of Wonderful” – they’re lovely guys and we had the opportunity to get to know them behind the scenes as guests tucked into their dinner unaware of the surprise that was in store.
Following our surprise and comical introduction, the guests were mesmerised by outstanding performances from our world class tenor, soprano and mezzo soprano who brought everyone to their feet in a standing ovation after their renditions of “Nessun Dorma” and The” Brindisi” from La Traviata. Our special dedication piece was of course a special arrangement of “Happy Birthday” for the birthday girl. It was a great audience to perform for and by the end of the show the whole room was on its feet applauding rapturously and asking for “encore” after “encore”.......
