Singing Sommeliers

Comedy Opera Act

Singing Sommeliers presents 30 minutes of wine, comedy and song to thrill guests at your next event.

Two sommeliers lead proceedings and present the chosen wines, discussing the origins of the grapes, the winemaking processes involved and the individual qualities of each sumptuous beverage.

One sommelier is serious about wine. Her male colleague clearly has little clue…

Eventually the sommeliers’ presentation builds to the point where musical arias marry with the flavours of the food and wine.

Presenting popular opera favourites sung by professional opera singers with a comedic twist, this entertaining duo (a soprano and a tenor) will inspire, tease and delight your guests. The words of well-known operas will be tailored specially for your event, making it truly personalised and unforgettable.

Rebecca and Jon are the team behind Singing Sommeliers and not only have they taken the corporate and private party market by storm with their original and fresh approach to entertainment, but their operatic credentials are undoubted. They met whilst both performing as full-time soloists with Opera Australia.

They’ve performed together in Europe, America, Asia and the Middle East and have toured as soloists in The Merry Widow, Madam Butterfly, La Boheme, Cosi Fan Tutti, Die Fledermaus, Don Pasquale, and in the Gilbert and Sullivan trio of The Mikado, HMS Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance.

Singing Sommeliers offer a range of performances to suit different audiences but all are hilarious and highly enjoyable. They can appear as the Masters of Ceremonies at corporate events who become the impromptu entertainers when the hired performers ‘fail’ to appear. They can be sommeliers arriving at the tasting/restaurant/function to aid guests in their experience of the wines, running through the characteristics of the various grape varieties on offer, the style and the adopted wine making processes of each wine – before enthusiastically bursting into song. Or perhaps they can attend a winemaker’s dinner and stand in for the resident winemaker who is running late. Pavarotti may even enter, singing about his life, his women, spaghetti and the tricks he plays on the tax man.
