Nominated for Best Comedy Show and Best Newcomer after her sold-out show at the Manchester Fringe 2019, Madame Chandelier’s Rough Guide to the Opera returns to the Kings Arms for two nights for its Best Of The Manchester Fringe series between January 6 and 19.

Canadian soprano Delea Shand spent her whole life trying and training to be an opera singer, but then she had kids, moved from New York to England and couldn’t get any opera work anymore. So she bought an accordion and started singing in comedy clubs instead.
