Who are The Opera Belles?
The Opera Belles is an ensemble of vocal-duo-plus-piano, performing the most beautiful opera hits (“only the good parts!”) in a unique way!
Many of our vocal arrangements – with more to come - are completely original, and there is good reason for that!
So many of opera’s most beautiful numbers are limited to the voice-type (heavy vs. lyric, high vs. low) for which the role is written. We take exception to that limitation.
With the help of a few small key changes, some precise excision, and the creation of original harmonies, we founded our duo on the joy of singing the best female operatic arias, in duet form! After over a year of diligent study together, working on perfecting our exquisite blend, synchronizing our deliveries, and fine-tuning our repertoire, there are times during our concert where you will swear this is only one voice singing. Who is whom?
Double the beauty, double the passion: We proudly present “The Opera Belles”!
