It has made me appreciate opera as a genre. It has given me a taste of the effort and work that go into live performances and so increased my enjoyment and admiration of productions I have seen. My confidence as a part time disabled person has benefited hugely – proving that with good will on the side of the production team and other cast members disability need not be a barrier to becoming involved
