"Fantastic night at the opera..."
Opera Alba...states its aim is "bringing opera to the people of Scotland and beyond".
This it achieves admirably, and much more.
"An excellent mix with much to remember..."
The mix of music was excellent. The opening Brindisi from Verdi's La Traviata was a perfect introduction and the music, some familiar, some not so, flowed on courtesy of Dvorak, Mozart, Bernstein and Puccini, to name but few.
There were many highlights and these included a wonderful Soave sia il Vento from Cosi fan Tutte and the famous quartet from Verdi's Rigoletto.
"The style of the evening was fine and the commentary good and appropriate - the performers engage well with their audience."
