To the Principals - Midland Opera would like to say a huge thank you to all the principals who joined us for this production. What an array of talent! All were well reviewed and received most enthusiastically by our audiences and loved by the members of the chorus. We make particular mention of the stunning performances given by the three sopranos, all hit by a throat virus during the performance run, and by Catherine Cooper’s fantastic vocal coverage of the role of Lola on the first night. Find out more about them here.
To the Dancers - Darcy and Joshua, you gave our show an added dimension with your fabulous dancing. Audiences loved you. Thank you and WELL DONE! Darcey Wortley and Joshua Broadbent are both just 17, and currently studying dance at Birmingham Ormiston Academy.
To our Orchestra - Your secure and sensitive playing inspires the confidence to give of our best. Thank you.
To our Audience - Thank you for supporting us by buying your ticket and by the warmth of your applause. We always do our best to give you something special and we hope we achieved this with this year’s production. Keep an eye out for our next venture.
