The Pearl Fishers opened last weekend to full houses in both Lindfield and Hurstpierpoint. First night's are always a nerve wracking affair but we got a wonderful reception from the audience at Lindfield and we love the intimate venue which really helps us to deliver on our promise of being "opera that's close enough to touch".
As always we sing in English and perform in the round with music courtesy of the Heber Opera ensemble and the principals and chorus who work their socks off to bring the drama to the audience as well as the music. We also have a few innovations for this production, fabulous lighting from PitchBlack, costumes from India and genuine oysters. Our second show in Hurstpierpoint was another sell-out and we got a great reception there too.
There are still a few tickets left for the shows this week but they are selling fast so hurry up and book if you haven't done so already!
