This has been a remarkable experience for her.  What a fantastic opportunity. She has seen how a production is put together, and understood the commitment required to pull something off at a professional standard  - a process she has thoroughly enjoyed.   It has boosted her confidence on stage, and introduced her to opera - an art form she hadn't previously experienced.

A great introduction to opera for the children.  The staging was excellent and even my 2 year old nephew was riveted!
