"It was life enhancing – the best thing I’ve done all year."

Opera: did you know?

Opera creates exhilarating experiences through its perfect fusion of music, singing, acting, staging and design.

Opera is storytelling through music. It is the stuff of life; love, death, loss, passion, joy, anger.

What audiences experience is only the tip of an iceberg; the culmination of months of rehearsals, training, preparation, dedication, professionalism and creativity from all involved.
