The programme has now been announced for Opera at Cadhay on the evening of Tuesday, September 25 in aid of Hospiscare.

Internationally acclaimed opera singers Anando Mukerjee and Justine Viani will be performing highlights from Tosca, The Merry Widow, Cavalleria Rusticana and much more at the black-tie event hosted by Rupert Thistlethwayte and Caroline Prior.

Anando is well-known locally, having sung at Cadhay before and with Devon Opera. He is versatile enough to take on both lyrical and dramatic roles. Justine has performed all over the world as an oratorio soloist, and won praise for her roles in opera theatres.

The evening starts at 6.30pm with a champagne and canapés reception in Cadhay’s Courtyard of the Sovereigns, followed by the performance. Supper will be served during the interval.

Tickets are £75 and available via www.hospiscare.co.uk, or by phoning 01392 688020.
