After last year’s sell-out show, the Rat Pack of Opera are returning to north Northumberland at the start of next month.

Tenors Un Limited are proud to bring their latest touring production, Show the Suit Who’s Boss to Alnwick Playhouse on Saturday, November 8.

Known as the Rat Pack of Opera due to their wit, charisma and style, Jem Sharples, Scott Ciscon and Paul Martin will perform some of their favourite songs in a new show, which includes hits from the world of opera, musical theatre and pop, interspersed with some self-penned original material from their forthcoming album.

Tenor Scott said: “We are really pleased with this show. We wanted to go on the road with one that was even better than our last.

“This is a great challenge after 12 years of singing together, but we are confident that the audience will love our versions of Something’s Coming from West Side Story and Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love, as well as popular classical must-haves, Nessun Dorma and O Sole Mio, alongside some self-penned titles.”

For their 2014 tour, the trio have worked hard to build on the success of their album Viva la Vita.

Show the Suit Who’s Boss is a stripped-back, intimate show, with only a piano accompaniment at times.

The Gazette’s review of their Playhouse show in 2012 said: “With outstanding voices which capture the emotion and meaning of a song effortlessly, Tenors Un Limited proved they are not called the Rat Pack of Opera for nothing.

“Made up of Jem Sharples, Paul Martin and Scott Ciscon, thre trio captivated the crowd at Alnwick. And while it may have just been three men and a piano, it was simple, effective and mesmerising.”
