Pocket Opera

Pocket Opera are Pat Leighton, Helen Roberts and Martin Le Poidevin with Kathy Gibbs at the piano. We sing to sell-out audiences in venues around Bristol.

Our fun-packed and fast-moving programmes consist of songs, arias and ensembles for piano and voice(s) in different styles and from different musical periods, and then a Pocket Opera – a collection of items from operas, woven into a new storyline.

Our next performance – at Arnos Vale on 16th October – features songs and ensembles on the theme of Birds, as well as a new ‘opera’ featuring arias and ensembles through the ages as we imagine what a seance of opera composers might come up with!
