The award winning Opera-lele has rapidly established itself as one of the
most innovative and exciting new acts in the world.
Opera-lele is a crossover act specialising in singing music from opera and
musical theatre accompanied by the emotionally powerful yet understated
twang of the ukulele.
Having both trained as singers at the Royal College of Music and
Goldsmiths College in London, George Bartle and Amanda Harkett
have gone on individually to forge careers for themselves as entertainers of
the highest calibre.
In 2016, Opera-lele burst onto the music scene with a performance on
the Main Stage of the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival. Audiences were
stunned and excited by what they saw and heard. They
received a standing ovation and were described by many as the surprise hit of the festival.
