Opera Glass gave us an entertaining evening of opera favourites on Friday night.
It was beautifully sung and costumed and the dramatic lighting created just the right atmosphere. There was a varied selection of arias and ensembles, which included The Pearl Fishers duet; The Flower Duet; excerpts from La Boheme; and The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves. During the evening the audience had the opportunity to choose some of their own favourites.
If I had any criticism it would be that one or two of the longer ensembles would have been more understandable in English. It is good to find that Exeter can produce such talented performers. Indeed the whole evening was most enjoyable and I look forward to the next.
