We followed brothers Ethan and Kian as they attended their first opera at one of our Welcome Performances, with preconception-shattering results.

I was 18 when I attended my first opera! Obviously I hadn't know what I had been missing. And unfortunately there was nobody to wake me up.

Ahead of next Monday's opening we've picked out our top musical moment from Rossini's William Tell (and no, it's not the famous overture!)

Have to say your Italian Director`s interpretation of William Tell was messy and badly staged.   Fortunately the Music was lovely and two of the leads sang particularly well as did the magnificent chorus.  The best bit of the staging was the Tree.  So much unnecessary undressings - not all were attractive to see, …….Guillame got away with it, but how could the glamorous Princess love that dirty vest & flabby flesh exposed on the 2nd lead - not credible….
