DHL, the region’s leading express and logistics provider, today announced that it is sponsoring Opera In The Park, an open-air concert, which is being organised by The Royal Society of St. George to raise money for people in need in Bahrain.

The concert will feature renowned English tenor Mark Le Brocq and award-winning soprano Janis Kelly.  They will be accompanied by the accomplished Andrew West.  Le Brocq, Kelly and West are on a Middle East tour of Qatar, Dubai and Bahrain, the final stop.

The event will be held in the park on Thursday November 23rd at the American Express Bahrain Rugby Football Club in Saar. People will be able to enjoy a picnic on the grass while listening to much-loved classical operatic arias and duets from La Traviata and Magic Flute, as well as well-known numbers from hit musicals such as Les Miserables and West Side Story.

“We are so grateful to DHL for their sponsorship. A lot of money will be raised for charity as ticket sales are very high, “ said Emma Garrett, Opera in the Park Committee Chair.

The money raised by The Opera in the Park will be used to help needy people in Bahrain. In 2006, the Royal Society of St. George has, among other things, spearheaded the raising of BD28,000 for the children of the victims of the dhow accident, given BD1,000 to Indian victims of fire to enable them to buy new air conditioners, refrigerators, and cookers, provided playground equipment for handicapped Bahraini children and donated BD2,000 to a Down Syndrome baby needing life-saving heart surgery.
