The Grand Old Opera House Hotel has seen better days. It used to be a magnificent Opera House, whose stage was graced by the great sopranos and baritones of the age.
Nowadays, it’s fist fights that shatter glasses, the only divas are the ones who check-in and there’s not a single romantic hero to be found.
When shy Aaron joins the hotel’s ramshackle team he’s faced with emotionally volatile guests, apathetic staff and inept management. Not to mention the rumour of a pair of singing ghosts haunting the corridors.
But through the madness, one voice rings out clear, capturing both his ears and heart – and Aaron chooses to go into battle with the hotel's magical chaos in order to find the person who owns it.
