The Ravenswood Singers and Opera Live re-visit Sage Gateshead on Saturday, May 11th, 2013 when they present ‘Opera to Operetta’ with special guest star Janice Cairns.
Ashington born singing star Janice Cairns has an international career in music, but still finds time to support her own charity ‘Opera Africa’, which does wonderful work in that country, and ‘North East Promenaders against Cancer’, which presents The Last Night of the Proms in The City Hall each October.
The evening itself will feature wonderful music by Puccini, Verdi, Bizet and many more, sung by the hugely popular group ‘The Ravenswood Singers and Opera Live’, followed in the second half by a trip to Vienna, featuring the fabulous music of Strauss and Lehar in excerpts from ‘Die Fledermaus’ and ‘The Merry Widow’.
This is a fabulous evening of wonderful melodies not to be missed, and all profits will go to help the excellent work of ‘Opera Africa’.
