I wanted to tell you that I’ve gone on to do professional opera directing with people like Jonathan Moore and David Poutney, which very much started from the Magic Flute all those years ago, so thank you so much for that!! Really ignited the bug in me.
I will never forget singing in Tosca - never ever!
Daphnis and Chloe is great. The first time at the opera for us, and hopefully not the last.
I don't want Daphnis and Chloe to be over. CYO feels like home.
What a triumph, we loved it and as always you give so much to all the children. It’s wonderful to see them shine on stage. They all, so obviously loved performing, and as a group they are so very encouraging and supportive of one another. Credit to you & your team.
Amahl was so beautiful. The whole evening was a delight. I am not ashamed to say I cried!
I never knew opera could be so funny!
Singing with CYO has given me so much more confidence, not just in performing but in everything!
Thank you for trusting my child and helping them learn a major role. It has meant so much to her.
I was always interested in acting but never thought about opera at all. Then one of my friends persuaded me to join the CYO production team. I ended up stage managing two shows and want to work in production professionally.
I enjoyed making props and then seeing what I had made in the performance, it was satisfying seeing how what I did added to it. It was a great thing to be involved in and everyone was very kind, I would definitely do it again.
May I congratulate you and all participants to this impressive performance of Brundibár! What an artistic and convincing concept – and how well the children performed. Gaby Flatow, Hans Krása Stiftung
