Welcome to OperaHerts

Following last year's much-praised concert performance of Puccini's La Boheme, OperaHerts is proud to present Tosca, one of his most dramatic works - an opera on a huge scale which includes some of the most popular arias in the repertoire: Cavaradossi's hauntingly beautiful "E Lucevan le Stelle", Tosca's divine prayer, "Vissi d'Arte" and the "Te Deum" for Baron Scarpia and Chorus, which brings Act I to a chilling conclusion. Tosca is simply brilliant music theatre.

This concert performance features a wonderful cast, including Lee Bisset as Tosca, a role she has sung to great acclaim around the world, Stephen Aviss as Cavaradossi and Stuart Pendred as Baron Scarpia, supported by the OperaHerts Chorus and students from Watford Grammar School for Boys. The opera will be introduced and accompanied by the internationally renowned musician and Watford resident Phillip Thomas.

Tickets are £20 (under 16s £10).

4th March 2017 @7.30pm Clarendon Muse Watford WD18 7JA

 OperaHerts was formed in 2014 by a team of local musicians with renowned musician Phillip Thomas as Music Director. Our mission is to bring first rate opera performances to the Hertfordshire area. We give concerts of Opera excerpts, Concert performances of Opera, Masterclasses and Workshops and Community events. 

We are also committed to providing an annual charitable concert and November 2014 we raised over £1000 for Peace Hospice Care. Our concerts in November 2015 amd November 2016 benefitted The Alzheimers Society and the Epilepsy Society respectively. Our next event takes place on 4th March 2017, which will be a concert performance of Puccini's Tosca featuring Lee Bisset in the title role, Steven Aviss as Cavaradossi and Stuart Pendred as Scarpia, alongside the OperaHerts Chorus and students from Watford Grammar School for Boys.


 Our patron is the internationally acclaimed soprano Dame Josephine Barstow.
