Waiting at the Church

Our Opera Supper Evening in 2012 was called "An Evening at the Opera Comique" - our opportunity to explore the lighter side of Music, with choruses from Verdi, Smetana and Gilbert and Sullivan as well as some of the funniest pieces by Rossini, Offenbach and Flanders and Swann.

See the review below:





Opera Viva displayed a ‘wealth of talent’ at  An Evening at the Opera Comique by Opera Viva. Opera Viva is building a reputation for bringing some of the great vocal works to all areas of Merseyside. Throughout 2012 they have delighted audiences with an ambitious programme including Verdi’s La Traviata, Prince Orlofsky’s Ball and (Puccini’s) La Boheme. 


An Evening at the Opera Comique was a celebration of comedy in music from a wide range of sources – opera, comic opera and musicals. The beautiful voices were a joy to listen to as they trilled through a huge programme of many of our best-known songs __ together with some lesser-known. Among the old favourites by Gilbert and Sullivan, Mozart, Saint-Saens and Rossini in the first half was a comical rendition of A Policeman’s Lot from The Pirates of Penzance which had everybody laughing. The second half opened with a nostalgic medley of Flanagan and Allen favourites. There was a hilarious rendition of Rossini’s Cat Duet which I hadn’t heard before and it was enchanting.  The Gas Man Cometh (Flanders and Swann) was deliciously funny as was The Gendarme’s Duet (Offenbach) with topical references. On a more serious note there was Pie Jesu (Andrew Lloyd Webber) and Stars (Schonberg) from Les Miserables.


 There is such a wealth of talent in this organisation and I am only sorry that lack of space does not permit me to list all the names of the impressive singers with their repertoire. Rob Chesters provided the piano accompaniment as the backdrop to what was a wonderfully light-hearted evening beautifully presented – and performed in an intelligent, stylish and elegant manner.


Score: 4.5/5 – Stunning!
