What audiences have said about Opera-lele
"I was mildly worried when my lovely stepdaughter bought us tickets for tonight's show as I am not a big fan of opera nor ukulele, so it didn't bode terribly well.
We were hooked from the opening number!
Clever, funny and hugely entertaining. Great night out."
"Mandi and George's musicianship and stage presence make for an exciting evening of entertainment. They make opera and light classics accessible and fun, but without deriding their repertoire. Serious music, serious talent (and a dose of not-so-serious humour!) all add up to a lot of fun. If you have not seen them, go out of your way to do so, soon."
"Doesn't sound like it should work, but it does! Brilliant fun act with a charming pair of professional opera singers, songs cleverly arranged with ukulele accompaniment and a lot of chuckles too."
