The Merry Opera Company presents Saints and Sinners at St Michael's Church, Beccles.


An exciting performance by the Merry Opera Company is coming to St Michael’s Church in Beccles, on Saturday, December 5 at 7.30pm.

The concert will include Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, the Requiems of Mozart and Faure and favourite hymns.

There will also be wicked words from Bizet’s Carmen, Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Lehar’s Merry Widow; and mischievous moments from Paddin’ Madeleine, the Bar on the Piccola Marina and Lip to Lip.

It is a mix of music that celebrates the whys and wherefores of the human condition with four splendid voices and a piano.

The Merry Opera Company, a registered charity, is a professional touring company that has visited 69 different towns and villages across the UK since 2007.

The company is well known in this region for their remarkable, memorable performances of Handel’s Messiah.

Tickets are £10 for adults or £6 for under 16s and are available from Beccles Public Hall on 01502 770060 or and at the door of St Michael’s on the night of the performance.

There will be a bar serving wine and soft drinks.
