Peter Knapp was a chorister and lay clerk between 1958 and 1970 and went on to a successful career in opera.
“I’ve recently revived my show – All you ever wanted to know about Opera! – which takes a light hearted look at my life in opera. I present with a cast of three young star singers and a 15-piece orchestra and perform a selection of opera’s loveliest moments. I give a brief overview of the genre, a delight to opera buffs and newcomers alike, tell a lot of funny stories and invite the audience to take part, training them to join in with half-a-dozen rousing opera choruses.
I wonder if you would forward this information to the ex-choristers: it would be good to have some classy singers joining in with the opera choruses!”
Here are some clips from the show: on Youtube.
The next performance is:
