The Staircase Opera Company

The Staircase Opera Company


We are delighted to invite Staircase Opera to perform for us again at the Dart Music Festival.

Sopranos  Donna Marie Broomfield and Lisa Moffat; mezzo-soprano Grace Lovelass; tenors John Crowley and Ceri Davies;  baritone Gareth Davies in a joyous array of music from operas by Purcell, Handel,  Bizet, Donizetti, Bellini, Mozart and Puccini. They will be accompanied on the piano by Alex Wilson and Roger Stephenson.

An hour of pure delight is promised with this programme of music from well known and loved opera and operetta.

Staircase Opera was created in 2004 when the director Martin Harvey had the desire to stage small stage opera. He gathered an ensemble of performers from the world of opera and performed The Turn of the Screw by Britten. Individual’s careers meant that they did not meet again until 2016. Three productions followed between then and 2020. During this time their popularity grew for their concerts of excerpts from the more mainstream and well known operas.
