A concert comprising operatic arias is always popular since the listener has the chance to hear all the great tunes in one go. Ardent devotees however, would strongly disagree by saying they feel short- changed on being rationed to one small  excerpt. My feelings are that a good tune  is always worth an outing! From a singer's  point of view, to be allowed the luxury of  putting all these favourite arias into one  concert, is a dream come true.  On this occasion, there are snippets  from Mozart's masterpiece, The Magic Flute  which interestingly, has strong connections  with Freemasonry; another of his favourites  is the light-hearted opera, CosÌ fan Tutte  with its rather silly love story that, contrary to most operatic plots, ends happily ever  after. Rossini's Barber of Seville is far from  serious and anyone who believes opera  to be a tedious and heavy art form will  think again once he or she has seen a  performance. As for the 'big' tunes, there  are no better offerings than Delilah's  superbly rich aria, Mon coeur s'ouvre à ta  voix and the very beautiful O mio babbino caro from Puccini's Gianni Schicchi.
