We hired Poperasops to entertain our guests at the Waitrose Drinks Festival. Their combination of beautiful opera classics and famous rock songs and theme tunes sung, in perfect Italian, in a comedy operatic style captured the audience's imagination - some laughing, others moved to tears. Their passionate performance created a buzz that helped our stand get recognition as one of the stand out hits of the festival. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Tora and I regularly perform together as part of Poperasops and I enjoy every minute of our preparations and performances. She is professional, courteous and always well prepared. I am in awe of her comfort on stage and communication with the audience. She is musical and very ensemble aware which makes her a delight to perform with. She has a beautiful, natural instrument with a strong bottom register and a resonant top register, where notes are produced with ease- enough to turn most sopranos green with envy!
