Meet Bella Popera
Bella Popera brings together three young multi-lingual sopranos whose self-appointed brief in life is to deliver a breathtaking set of operatic arias and chart-topping covers with panache and flair.
This delightful classical crossover trio has created an engaging repertoire that sets out to build musical bridges between contrasting genres, giving a stylish twist to familiar songs. Their carefully crafted three-part harmonies of operatic arias, chart-topping hits, and musical theatre classics are guaranteed to enchant and delight in equal measure.
Bella Popera is rightly proud of its cultural and linguistic diversity and are equally at ease performing in English, Spanish and French - perfect for both premium cruising and corporate events.
Whether singing Louis Armstrong’s timeless classic ‘What a Wonderful World’ - first released back in the mid-sixties - or Camilla Camello’s edgy ‘Havana’ which topped the charts just a year ago – Bella Popera are at the very top of their crossover game when creating innovative harmonies of hit songs.
