About Poperasops

Classical crossover group
Stroud
Verified profile
Top of the Sops duo - Phillippa Lay and Victoria Wilson perform favourite opera, crossover and pop works with a difference!

Both Victoria and Phillippa began singing as children in local productions and choirs. They met through their singing teacher Louise Crane, after both had attended the Birmingham Conservatoire and have enjoyed performing a variety of musical styles together as Poperasops ever since. Poperasops love performing any style from opera to pop and their unique interpretations of modern classics and old favourites are something to behold. Whether you are looking for a tailored comedy set of pop songs performed ‘opera style’, or for competing sopranos battling it out to be crowned ‘Top of the Sops’ for a private or corporate event or concert, you can be sure Poperasops will look and sound magnificent, and bring a smile to your face!

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer a free playlist service for free.
