The Champagne Quartet is an operatic vocal quartet made up of graduates of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Established in 2016, they have some very impressive credits to their name. During their 2018 Festive Winter tour of Wales, they supported The Sixteen at St David’s Hall in Cardiff and were featured guest soloists for Welsh choirs Hymns and Arias, and Vocelle.
During the summer of 2018, they had the privilege to perform alongside the Welsh National Opera Orchestra at St David’s Hall, as well as starring in an event for esteemed charity Music in Hospitals, which raised over £3,000.00.
The quartet has a strong array of repertoire at their disposal, with a focus on involving choral societies and other ensembles joining them. Ranging from smaller ‘pop-up’ operas to concerts including lighter classical music and musical theatre, they are ready and able for any event. They have had great success with their production of The Magic Flute, and are preparing a new version of La Bohème, plus more!
The Quartet will perform music from the great Italian operas, including Mozart (Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni & scenes from Die Zauberflote), Verdi (La Traviata, Rigoletto), Donizetti (Don Pasquale), and Puccini (scenes from La Boheme).
Further details on the group appear on their website.
