Opera on Unusual Instruments

Almost as long as opera and operetta have been in existence, people have adapted its great arias to perform at home, on street corners, or at the club, adapting the keys to fit both the instrument and the singers available.

Enjoy multi-instrumentalist Matt Redman's collection of hundred-year-old mandolins, banjos, guitars and accordion as he collaborates with mezzo-soprano Patricia Hammond for some unexpected but familiar numbers from La Boheme, Don Giovanni, the Magic Flute, Louise, Samson et Dalila, the Merry Widow and maybe a bit of G&S!
