Audience member, Consett

We wish to place on record our appreciation of the Riverside Plays Opera evening at Consett on July 11th. We had not been to an opera or brass concert before but we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was light, in parts humorous and the music and singing was truly enjoyable. We feel fortunate that we were able to experience this concert so near to home, as anything comparable, we believe we should have had to travel to London to see.

In July 2012, InterOpera presented a completely new programme of classical arias, overtures and opera choruses, with Penelope Randall-Davis, James Edwards, Austin Gunn and Roderick Earle, accompanied by the NASUWT Riverside Band, under the baton of InterOpera music director Alistair Dawes.

The programme was presented at The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, Middlesbrough Town Hall and The Empire Threatre, Consett.
