Cameo Opera at Charlton Park

After an indifferent summer the weather gods smiled on us and we had lovely, balmy evening for the start of our event, a picnic in the grounds of Charlton park. Following good food, wine and company we moved into the ballroom for the entertainment.
Cameo Opera provided a delightful musical evening. The program ranged from Puccini to Porgy and Bess and musical stops in between. Not only were the troupe accomplished singers but great actors too, with a seductive soprano circulating during her aria, and a barber who shaved a member of the audience during Figaro!
We were lucky to have some good male voices in the audience who went on stage to join in the chorus of ‘ A Policeman’s lot is not a Happy One’, appropriate knee bending included!
We had some spectacular gifts for auction and thanks to the generosity of the audience we raised £680 for this years charities, KRAN and SNAAP.
