A RECEPTION to raise funds for the charity Rukba will reveal all the mystery of opera into the bargain on Saturday.

Peter Knapp's Opera Revue gives an insight into the divas, the dramas, and unforeseen disasters of opera, drawn from the singer, director and raconteur's experience.

He performs a feast of arias and duets with Heather Shipp (mezzo soprano) and Simon Hester (piano) to bring an evening of laughter and glorious voices.

The reception will begin at 7pm at Hereford's Courtyard Theatre. Call to book on 0870 1122330.
