Opera Boys to belt out classics in Dudley
Four leading men from London’s West End will perform a range of memorable music from opera to pop when they visit Dudley.
The Opera Boys are at Dudley Town Hall on Thursday May 23rd, with tickets on sale now.
Operatic arias and classical favourites such as Nessun Dorma will be mixed with showstoppers from hit musicals including Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera right through to Jersey Boys.
The show also features brand new classical arrangements of modern day pop hits, all performed in The Opera Boys own inimitable style.
Alex Jackson, booker for Dudley Borough Halls, said:
The Opera Boys have been delighting audiences all over the world with their unique show combining powerful and emotional music with funny, engaging and light-hearted entertainment.
Making classical music accessible to the masses, The Opera Boys deliver a wonderfully entertaining show not to be missed.”
The boys trained at some of the UK’s finest schools including The Royal Academy of Music, and have each become highly successful performers in their own right.
Between them they have performed lead roles on London’s West End and on Broadway in New York. They have performed as backing vocalists to some of the world’s biggest superstars including Russell Watson, Robbie Williams, Tom Jones and Elton John. In 2015 one of the boys appeared as part of the Belgian entry for The Eurovision Song Contest, performing to a global audience of 200 million, and placing a very respectable fourth in the competition.
They have been invited to perform at a number of prestigious events including the 10th Anniversary of the world’s most famous cruise ship, Cunard’s superliner Queen Mary 2, and the inaugural voyage of P&O’s largest cruise ship Britannia, launched by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
