Dame Felicity Lott is one of Britain’s best-loved sopranos and the President of British Youth Opera. She was joined, in a programme of staged scenes from operettas by Léhar, Offenbach and Strauss, by BYO alumni, who are already making a name for themselves on the opera stages of some of the world’s most prestigious opera houses.
Merchant Taylors’ is an historic livery company which has evolved from a medieval Guild responsible for the tailoring trade, to a society of global merchants up to today where it functions as an association with an educational and charitable focus.
