Jonathan Veira is a larger-than-life entertainer, whose career in opera has been matched by his many years as a one-man entertainer, filling some of the UK’s largest auditoriums. On a Similar Note is a collection of humorous observations. Jonathan Veira brings together some of his wonderful and hair-raising experiences, in a perceptive and compassionate account of working with some of the greatest names in the world of opera. It includes tales of power cuts, weather problems and accidents. If things can possibly go wrong, they will: from collapsing organ pipes to kamikaze sheep and directors who have the strangest of bright ideas. Situations where the cast’s capacity for improvisation is stretched to the absolute limit, leaving everything open to chance. To the delight and hilarity of the audience, the potential for horrible mistakes is huge.
