Why "Diva on your
Since I started my collaboration with the international opera company based in Italy "Gli Amici di Fritz" I found that some of my favourite performances have been the ones done in small villages and towns, where opera isn't normally performed. That's why I decided to do the same for villages in Devon as it's something I'm sure people will enjoy! You'll be able to have a lovely evening of thrilling and beautiful music, not far from home and without thinking about having to drive far or worry about parking.
We hope to be able to bring our show to more villages in the future so stay tuned for more!
