A GREAT start to 2018...'busy, but very satisfying..!

Well... 2018 has certainly started with a 'bang' for us....The Norfolk Island Music Tour was a great success with just over 90 travellers enjoying a week of varied concerts, convivial dinners, tours and relaxing free time exploring the island. So many of those who came, asked for another similar week....(Tonga is in our sights !!) We then had four delightful nights in Sydney for Opera on the Harbour, with many enjoyable activities..and a great group of people. Now we are drawing breath and fine-tuning the tours on our horizon!

The July 'Superstars' tour to Sydney to see two iconic operas, Rigoletto and Lucia, with fabulous casts is now officially full. If you're sad to have missed it (and we do have a great time in Sydney! ), please ask us to pop you on our wait-list.

Our much-anticipated 'La Dolce Vita' tour in Italy, May 2019, has just gone on sale to those who 'Reserved A Place'. You can read about it below and once these folk have either booked or declined, (by 8th May) we will offer any free places to the rest of our clients. If you are interested, you'd better let us know as bookings are flowing in!

Due to some gentle persuasion and paying early for all the rooms we have already filled, Stewart has managed to hold on to our last two rooms for the UK tour until mid-June.
(We filled the two we'd begged to hold on to !) We know there are a few still trying to clear the way and join us....Whoever is able to step forward and take one of these last places is in for an incredibly rich and enjoyable time in S W England, London and Wales...truly!

At the time of writing, the Verdi Tour is all but full with just one room left! (We've had a few bookings just last week.) Because we have paid in full for all tickets needed thus far...we've been able to hold our last two 'sets' of tickets! (We can take either one or two people, but have just one room). If you join us for this inspiring Festival in Parma plus the two operas at La Scala, you'll enjoy seven fabulous performances and lots, lots more!

Finally, Opera on the Harbour 2019 is now On Sale. Reliable word has it that there will be a change to the Handa opera format next year, with a thrilling block-buster musical to be offered instead of an opera. Initially disappointed, we then decided that a big musical with lots of singers and dancers would actually be spectacular in this inspiring setting. We can't say more, but the choice of musical will be officially announced at the end of May. Bookings are already coming in for our annual four day tour..regardless of what is chosen!
