Opera Appreciation Group
We are unable to meet at present, but members keep in touch with updates on opera performances available on television, especially the daily broadcasts from the Met in New York. We hope to start again in late summer, depending on government advice, and we will be meeting on the 3rd Monday of the month at 10:00 for 10.15, rather than the present 2nd Monday. Anyone interested in joining this group should liaise with the group organiser.
|When:||3rd Monday of the Month|
|At:||10:00 for 10:15|
|Where:||George Moore Community Centre, Bourton-on-the-Water|
|Group Organiser:||Roger Harris|
This group started in July 2016 with the aim being to learn about, listen to and attend performances of opera. At the monthly meetings, members take it in turns to ‘present’ an opera or we all ‘research’ a topic to discuss, bringing CDs and DVDs, if possible.
So far, we have made outings to Simulcast performances at the Witney Cineworld and the Regal Cinema, Evesham, together with live performances at the Cheltenham Everyman, Cirencester Agricultural College, Westonbirt and Rodmarton.
Some Group members have been stewarding at the Longborough Festival Opera for several years.

You don’t have to be an expert to join, just like listening to opera music.
