Barber is now touring throughout the UK, we would love to hear from you….
If you have anything to tell us about a performance or talk please leave your comments here
We thoroughly enjoyed your Barber of Seville at Winchester last week. Excellent band, wonderful singing and great acting/stage sense enhanced by a brilliant multi-purpose set. To be honest, we thought your performance more entertaining than the 2016 Glyndebourne production.
Please carry on bringing your excellent company to the provinces..
Thank you for writing and for the lovely comments, I will let the company know it will give them a real boost!
I really enjoyed your Barber of Seville at Yeovil’s Octagon last night. How great to have live opera in our small town miles from the nearest opera house. The singers were all excellent with Jessica Robinson’s performance being especially memorable as she not only has a lovely voice but her acting was superb making for a delicious combination.Aidan Coburn has a great voice too and his love-making was suitably impassioned (though I should love to have seen the state of their marriage after 5 years or so!) I remember Paul Hudson as a superb Don Pasquale a few years ago and it was great to hear his rich voice again but why was his face covered in soot-coloured make-up rather than the usual white & rosy of the 18th century? One thought: the choreography could have been better. At times the performers’ movement across the stage was a bit muddled especially when the chorus was there and I feel that good choreography could have added more to the comedy. Do you have your own choreographer? Also, we couldn’t always hear the words not that the plot was difficult to follow. What we could hear was a great translation. Of course best of all was the lovely music, especially the many lovely arias and the wonderful set pieces where several performers sang together. A great evening; please keep up the good work. I hope Swansea City will revise its funding decision as you are a great advertisement for the city – possibly better than Swansea city Fotball Club with its struggles!
We attended the performance of Barber of Seville at the Stiwt, Rhosllanerchrugog. The whole evening was most enjoyable, the pre-performance talk and the opera itself. The venue was nearby (about 2 miles). We have been to previous productions of Swansea City Opera in Shrewsbury + Pwllheli and have always enjoyed them so knew of the reputation of the company. We are seniors and enjoy classical music and opera. The production was splendid, the singers and the orchestra; I was able to speak briefly to the conductor afterwards and thank him for the contribution of the orchestra. which added greatly to our enjoyment of the production. We will be very likely to attend another opera if the opportunity arises.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment on our evening at the opera.
Lovely to hear that you support us so much and thank you for writing, all the company will be very pleased.
Quite simply a Tour de Force ! Enjoyed every minute. Glad we attended pre- show talk. It was both entertaining and very informative. Congratulations to all your highly talented team including stage and costume designers. Lovely to have live quality music.
A huge BRAVO!
Please come back to the Isle of Man very soon.!…to our beautiful Frank Matcham theatre.
Thank you so much for writing! I’ll let the cast know and I hope we are able to come back to Douglas next year. Such a beautiful theatre…..
What a splendid evening and thank you for travelling over the water to visit us in the Isle of Man. It was a real joy to see such a wonderful production in our lovely Gaiety Theatre. The production and singing were wonderful. We look forward to your return.
We’re thrilled that you enjoyed it and we will try our hardest to come back again. The Gaiety was meant for live opera!
