Happy New Year!

1st Jan 2012

Just a little note on the first day of 2012 to thank you for being so very supportive of Opera Bespoke in this last year.  We have thoroughly enjoyed entertaining you and look forward to bringing you more great vocal performances in the form of singing waiters, opera galas and other extraordinary shows.
 
2012 promises to be a great year and we have a lot to thank our predecessors for – the wonderful compositions and musical interpretations – so here is a list of important anniversaries to celebrate in 2012 and we hope to honour their memories in the months to come:
