CROSS-OVER crooners the Opera Boys return with their blend of big personalities, belting vocals and brilliant banter this weekend.

After delighting audiences at their Clacton debut a year to the day ago in 2017, the lads are back at the West Cliff for an evening of entertainment.

They serve up a mix of operatic arias, West End show-stoppers and classical arrangements of modern-day pop hits in their own unique style.

Audiences can expect old favourites such as Nessun Dorma, tear-jerkers from Les Miserables and stirring heart-tuggers from Phantom of the Opera, all the way through to Jersey Boys.

Made up of leading men from London’s West End and Broadway, the group boasts some of the UK’s finest classical voices trained by London’s Royal Academy of Music.

They have performed more than a thousand concerts over the last five years, as well as making any number of brides blush on their big day by posing among the waiting staff before suddenly breaking into song.

The boys have also sung backing vocals with some of the world’s biggest superstars, including Robbie Williams, Tom Jones, Elton John and Russell Watson.

Three years ago one even appeared as part of Belgium’s Eurovision entry in front of a global audience of 200 million before coming an impressive fourth in the competition.

They also performed at the tenth anniversary of world-famous cruise ship Queen Mary 2.

The Opera Boys are at the West Cliff this Saturday at 7.30pm. Tickets are £19.50 from the box office on 01255 433344.
