Radlett & District

Opera Appreciation

Leader: - Catherine Ritchie

Please note the Opera Appreciation Group will now meet on the third Thursday in the month.

The group is still full at the moment. We do not have a waiting list.

The operas usually run for just over two hours and we have one or two breaks for refreshment and chatting (about the subject!) this is in an informal manner; members offer any little bits of information they have about the composers, singers etc.

During the last year we have watched different operas every month, some well known and some not so well known. We are gradually working through a list of the group member's favourite performances. We decided to watch the whole opera at each meeting, which only leaves time for cake and biscuits in between.

However as a study group, I am assured that we are all becoming more knowledgeable with each production and certainly living up to out title of “Appreciating Opera". We currently have our maximum number of 16 members squeezed into my sitting room, and a waiting list of 2. On the right is a photograph of some of the members at our November 2017 meeting.
