The ELIXIR Opera Show (1 x 30 mins / 1 x 50 mins)
Perfect Event Entertainment, Dinner Entertainment or a Wedding Reception
A thoroughly entertaining show, filled with popular opera including ‘Habanera' from Carmen, ‘Nessun Dorma’, The Flower Duet and the Drinking Song from La Traviata! ELIXIR perform in a cabaret-style where they include members of the audience in the drama of their show. Stunning sounds mixed with entertaining and sometimes hilarious drama!
Opera Flash Mob into Opera Show (1 x 20 mins / 1 x 30 mins / 1 x 50 mins)
Perfect for Wedding Receptions, Dinner Entertainment or Surprise Entertainment
Similar to the ELIXIR Opera Show, but ELIXIR will start with a surprise! ELIXIR blend in with your guests, mixed around different tables. ELIXIR's pianist will be the perceived musical entertainment for the night, playing background music when suddenly a member of ELIXIR will start singing. As your guests start to look confused, One by one ELIXIR join in and create a flash mob of opera leading into a show!
ELIXIR in Concert (1 x 15 mins / 1 x 30 mins)
Ideal for Weddings - Ceremony & Reception, Dinner Entertainment or a Private Concert
ELIXIR stand and deliver a stunning set of vocals with your choice of repertoire… think Il Divo but with ladies too! A mix of popular opera, classical crossover and popular songs like Coldplay’s Fix You or Gary Barlow’s Rule the World- but with an operatic twist. A concert from ELIXIR will add that little extra elegance, thrill and luxury to an evening.

I am assuming that 5 is the tops! The group were fantastic and exceeded our expectations. Our guests were overwhelmed with their professionalism and enthusiasm. Bethany was very helpful with the choice of repertoire, the performers arrived on time and completely fitted in with our plans and timings for the evening. They all sang beautifully and with panache.
This is the second time we have had Elixir to perform for us. They never disappoint, bloody fantastic and I gather we are booking them for next year!
The guys were extremely nice and professional and their performance was outstanding! Will definitely book them again if I have the chance.
Wonderful evening with Hungerford Rotary Club and Elixir. You don't like opera? You will after this!
Elixir Opera Group are four professional opera singers who enjoy singing classical, opera and popera music for events around the UK and abroad.
The band have all studied individually at leading music conservatoires around the UK and are now working with national opera companies as principal opera singers.
Elixir Opera Group were formed in 2013 when the group performed for celebrities from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing at a large celebrity ‘Winter Wonderland’ event at Karen Hardy Studios in London, Elixir Opera Group have also performed at a wrap party for Warner Bros Films at the Langham Hotel in London and have performed for various small and large weddings around the UK.

They have also sung for livery companies in London at private functions (e.g Worshipful Company of Clothmakers, Worshipful Companies of Musicians).
How much Stage space do you require?
Ideally 12 feet by 12 feet but we are happy to fit to the venue - depending on the package that the client chooses from us, we can walk around the room or we can stand on a small stage and perform.
How much time do you require to set up and sound check?
We normally sing at venues with a piano, and the singers are not amplified but for larger venues we are happy to “mic-up” and amplify the piano (this normally takes around 20-30 mins). We can bring an electric piano and small PA system solely for the piano to events that do not have a piano.
What is your full line-up and instrumentation?
Soprano, Mezzo, Tenor, Baritone and Piano.
Do you offer any extras? i.e. DJ service, extra musicians etc? And, if so, at what cost?
Not at present, however we are In talks with a circus company to create an aerial/ opera act.
Do you provide your own PA?
Yes, however, we are more of an acoustic act, opera singers and piano. However, we can cater up to 300 guests, we would then hire equipment in for larger audiences to amplify piano/electric piano and singers)
