A number one selling opera trio are bringing their new show to Hornchurch.

Tenors Unlimited will be performing From Venice to Vegas at Queen’s Theatre, Billet Lane on Wednesday, March 28.

The trio, made up of Scott Ciscon, Paul Martin and Jem Sharples, describe the show as an electic mix with popular classics including La Donna E Mobile, The Pearl Fishers Duet and Nessun Dorma.

The Rat Pack of Opera will also be performing some of their own songs, such as Senza di Te, Brand New Day and Viva La Vita.

Scott said: “We are writing a ton of songs at the moment - some that are right for the group, some that are outside the box.

“We all enjoy the process and bring our ideas to the table, sometimes very embryonic and sometimes the finished article.

“It’s always great to know that people enjoy your original works alongside some of the best and well-known tunes in the world.”

Scott is from Chicago and has a background in musicals such as Grease, Rent and Saturday Night Fever.

“This year is our 15th anniversary,” he said.

“But it doesn’t feel that long. We’re too busy having fun.”

The opera trio’s song Who is He, in aid of The Salvation Army, went to number one on the iTunes classical chart.

Speaking about where they find inspiration, Scott said: “We all work in different ways but often it stems from a thought or a melody that was rattling around in your head and next thing you know, it develops into something bigger and bigger.”

Tenors Unlimited have performed alongside well-known artists including Sting, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Hayley Westenra, Simply Red and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Paul Martin is the bass baritone of the group and has performed with opera companies all over Europe, Japan and the USA.

Jem Sharples, from Hastings, has a background in theatre, appearing in shows such as Aspects of Love, Whistle Down the Wind and Scrooge.

Tenors Unlimited will be performing at Queen’s Theatre on Wednesday, March 28.
