Pack your suitcases for a wild musical tour through favourite arias from operas and operettas, parlour songs and songs from the shows.  The featured composers range from the operatic lushness of Mozart, Gounod, Verdi and Puccini to the champagne effervescence of Offenbach, Lehar and Strauss.  The Times said of the company "I've said it all before, and will again: this company reminds us why we like opera"
