When Olivia Docherty watched Ale Martin and his musicians perform on holiday in Fuerteventura, she made it her mission to get them on stage at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay.

Working as a volunteer at the theatre herself, she asked manager Laila France if they could perform, and despite it not being the way bookings are usually made, Mrs France agreed. And tomorrow night, Argentinian tenor Ale Martin will be performing on the Fisher stage, accompanied by his musicians Paride Subashi from Albania on the violin, and Juanka Zamora from Spain on the electric and Spanish guitar.

It is the trio's first visit to England, and they will be performing popular opera arias from Verdi, Donizetti, Puccini, songs from Queen and some tango, plus their own compositions in English, Spanish and Italian.

Mr Martin said: 'For me to play in the Canary Islands was a dream, but now we are playing in England it's amazing.

'It's not only a music show, it's a different experience with music and you will feel different sensations throughout the show.

'We want to say a big thank you to Olivia, Laila and the theatre for their support. We now feel like we are part of the Fisher family.'

The trio are staying with Mrs Docherty at her home near Loddon, and also performed a show at Gringos in Norwich last night.
