♥ Opera from the Heart ♥

On Friday we were delighted to welcome once again, the performers from the Connaught Opera to our humble community centre!  The three stars put on a wonderful Valentines special show for a packed hall, despite some awful weather.


Karin made some amazing biscuits (heart shaped of course), cakes and sandwiches which everyone enjoyed with a glass of sherry:

The performance included plenty of well known songs and arias which were well known by many of our audience.  Everyone particularly enjoyed the costume changes for each song (we’ve tried to include a picture of each costume!).

We’d like to thank the Connaught Opera and the Hampstead Wells and Campden Trust who funded this wonderful free performance.
