Opera Voce

An Exciting New Experience

I would like to welcome you to Opera Voce Tours, a new business dedicated to providing opera lovers from around the world with an experience that goes beyond the opera house and the concert hall.

Simply by having arrived at this website, it is clear that you are an opera enthusiast, someone who already understands the emotional thrills and intellectual challenges that the art form can generate. No doubt, you have often been moved by an unfolding drama that ends in a heart wrenching tragedy or laughed along as, yet again, Susanna and Figaro get one over on Count Almaviva. On occasions, you may even have experienced disappointment or anger with a production.

Such reactions show us how important opera is in our lives.
