Planning: Do-it-yourself opera

If you’ve got a passion for opera, you no longer need to limit yourself to the schedules of the hushed halls of La Scala or Covent Garden to hear your favourite stars or arias.
“La Traviata” in your garden, with a professional cast of 20, costumes, stage and pianist, starts at around $10,000, not including travel costs. Bagging today’s hot soprano will cost between $15,000 to $25,000, depending on the event. Getting Luciano Pavarotti for your party might be dicey, but a good lead-time, a cheque for $30,000 and a fully stocked fridge would certainly put you in the running.

This is opera. So it’s not all about money and space; it’s also about the thrill of finding yourself two rows back from Don Giovanni as he descends into Hell.
And the singers are enthusiastic about DIY opera. "Whether you are organising a corporate function, dinner, cocktail party, intimate soiree or a stadium event, you can sit back, relax and enjoy your evening knowing that success is guaranteed with the Diamond Divas."
