Welcome to our boutique Music and Travel company, est 1994

Building on over 25 successful years of running their independent Opera and Song company OPERATIF! (est 1994),
soprano Jennifer Parish and baritone Stewart Cameron adapted easily to the realm of travel, establishing their own, extremely popular Music Lovers Tours, specialising in hosted opera and classical music tours. Italy is their specialty, but other destinations in Europe as well as closer to home ( including Australia ) are offered. The couple has always enjoyed great warmth and enthusiasm from clients, whether on the stage or hosting one of their tours. Stewart and Jennifer love to perform when time allows, but increasingly client demand for tours to marvellous places, fabulous Opera Festivals and world-class performances, both internationally and at home, sees their attention drawn to creating and hosting more of their musical 'trips of a lifetime'!  Do enjoy reading about us and our tours and we hope to see you soon.   Stewart & Jennifer
