The Alan Titchmarsh Show / A Night At The Opera starring Johathan Ansell

A Night at the Opera

The Alan Titchmarsh Show is set to host 'X Factor' style competition to search for Britain's newest Opera diva...

To celebrate the nation's new love affair with the world of operatic music is the fantastic new touring show, A Night at the Opera starring Jonathan Ansell.

To compliment Jonathan's boyish looks and sensational voice the producers of the show have undertaken a nationwide search to find the next great soprano and 'love interest' for A Night At The Opera.

The eight sopranos who have been picked as finalists will appear on The Alan Titchmarsh Show on Monday 1st September, 2008. They will sing before a judging panel and only four will go through to the next round. They will appear again during September and face a public vote to find two finalists, these will return to sing with Jonathan Ansell and face a final vote to find the winner. The winner will then be joined by the full cast of A Night at the Opera on the Alan Titchmarsh Show on October 27th, 2008 and star with them on the nationwide tour from 30th October to 23rd November.

Jonathan Ansell says "This is a good opportunity for a new rising soprano to come and join us, and get the chance to be part of this unique show. It's a privilege for me to sing all these great songs every night and for a whole month; I'm looking forward to seeing who I will be singing with!"

    Great to see this and brilliant that Jonathan and his Manager Jonathan are taking part - relly looking forward to watching this, but better get a couple of days booked off work to view though.

    A great idea to bring a new talent to the fore and to include in this show - sure there will be plenty of viewers voting going on.

    Can't wait to see this Tour as I have a few venues booked already !!
