an opera experience for all occasions

Opera by Design

Under the accomplished direction and accompaniment of Stuart Buckton, Opera by Design performs a wide variety of opera favourites as well as some beautiful music from lesser known operas. You will enjoy some of the best loved operatic repertoire from composers such as Mozart - Verdi - Beethoven - Bizet - Rossini - Bellini and many more.


You will revel in arias, duets, trios and quartets from the Marriage of Figaro, Daughter of the Regiment, Fidelio, Lakme, Samson and Delilah, La Boheme to name a few.


We also like to let our hair down enjoying lighter repertoire including the classic songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Meredith Willson and George Gershwin.
