I've had a great experience in the English Opera, they do serve as great gateway for newcomers to experience how it's like to be part of something grand as live opera. Personally there wasn't enough guiding at the actual opera for me to grasp all the thumb rules, so I had to read up on it on their official website - and you should too! The actual play was much more modern, than what I had believed. Not sure if it was just this specific play or I've been living under a rock my whole life - it was certainly an eye opener!
I watched the Magic Flute and was astounded by the excellent performances (singing, acting and music) and production. It was an incredible opera which was enhanced by the creativity, choreography and the lighting, stage and props. I am not a professional in this field but could not find fault. Everyone who bought Mozart to life in this version of the Magic Flute should be very proud of themselves. Thank you.
