ONE of the most successful classical crossover artists ever to have come out of Ireland will grace the Buxton Opera House stage next month.

The Celtic Tenors will perform live at the Water Street Venue on Monday May 2.

Last year saw the tenth anniversary of The Celtic Tenors – and the group has never been busier, continuing to move forward and break new ground.

Each of the trio - Daryl, James and Matthew ‑ is classically trained and they met together on the operatic stage in Dublin over a decade ago.

While opera, classical and choral music may be their foundation, each tenor has been influenced hugely by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland. Their show includes tenor classics such as Pavarotti and Bocelli standards, spiritual songs, musical theatre hits, even some pop, as well as songs from their latest North American album, while not forgetting a wealth of Celtic and Irish classics – both old and contemporary.

The Celtic Tenors’ live show is an experience overflowing with vitality and variety from start to finish.

The unique voices, charm and wit of Daryl, James and Matthew, combined with talented young Musical Director Colm Henry, create an emotive journey and a thoroughly uplifting experience. Their voices and undeniable Celtic charm shine through.

Tickets, priced at £13 and £15, are available on 0845 127 2190 or online at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
