Opera has been popular for years because it turns all our human emotions up to 11.

Couples falling in love, heartbreaking love triangles, drinking songs, slaves celebrating their freedom. The stories and scenes almost don't matter - they're all just a great excuse to hear soaring melodies, rousing choruses and the glorious sound of the human voice in full flight. We've picked some of the greatest opera moments of all time and we're going to present them all in one spectacular night. Whether you're an opera buff or want to sample the world of opera to see what the fuss is about, you'll have a great time at our Opera Gala.
