Audience feed-back/review for la Serva Padrona 2016):-
“Congratulations - it was a really enchanting show. After L’elisir we were really keen to come again. We all loved it.”
“Under Miller’s fluent, imaginative and highly accessible direction these.. performers dazzled with flawless excecution generating a fusion of music and theatre which is only rarely achieved.”
Barefoot Opera, the only company to practice a holistic approach to classical singers’ stage work, this year presents - for young singers on the threshold of careers and seeking further training - a new production of Bizet’s Carmen. Sung in Italian, fully staged, with our own Barefoot band of accordion, double bass, clarinet and piano, arranged by the inimitable Lesley Anne Sammons.
