Prima Divas is a Classical Singing Duo of professional opera singers trained to the very highest standard. They can provide anything from a full concert to corporate entertainment and can sing at weddings and fund-raising events. Their repertoire varies from classical songs through opera to musical theatre and cabaret.

Louise Walsh (Soprano) and Alison Kettlewell (Mezzo Soprano) trained together at the Royal Northern College of Music. Louise continued her studies at the National Opera Studio and Alison at the Royal College of Music Opera School. Louise then went on to be a major prize winner in the International Belvedere Singing Competition in Vienna and Alison was a winner of the AsLiCo Young European Opera Singers’ Competition at La Scala Milan. Louise then worked as a solo artist at the StaatsOper Stuttgart and Alison sang solo roles in many of the northern Italian opera houses. They have worked together for Opera du Rhin and in the Classical Spectaculars as guest soloists at the Royal Albert Hall. Other companies who have engaged them include English National Opera the Royal Opera House Opera Holland Park and English Touring Opera. Between them they have sung at all the major UK concert venues from the RAH to the Bridgewater Hall Manchester the Birmingham Symphony Hall The Queen Elizabeth Hall, St John’s Smith Square and the Cadogan Hall.

Highlights for Louise including singing Christine in ”Phantom of the Opera” in the west end and for Alison singing Charlotte in “Werther” at Opera Holland Park.

Louise hails from Ireland and Alison is a west –country girl with northern roots. Both have a well developed if dry sense of humour and don’t take themselves too seriously. .. However they take their performing very seriously and only the very best will do.
