So, we’ve managed to pull off another Blackheath Halls Opera. It’s quite a journey!!! So many achievements have been accomplished: if I were to thank everyone who helped make all this happen the list would have 200 names on it at least.
What I do know is that there are so many people out there who feel as passionately as I do about Blackheath Halls Opera. A massive thank you to all of you for making it what it is.
Here are a few of my favourite one-liners:
‘How can something important be so much fun?’
‘A life-affirming and life-changing experience! Everyone should take part.’
‘An opportunity to celebrate the best things about Blackheath: opera and community spirit both alive and thriving!’
‘The most magical, wonderful experience in the world that has affected me deeply in a very positive way.’
‘The borough should be immensely proud that this takes place and should promote it for what it is – a celebration of art and community.’
‘I would find it difficult to conceive of a better, more worthy and more positive community undertaking, anywhere. To be able to combine great but approachable art with a sense of, and the reality of, common purpose in a community is something that is not easy to describe.’
Below are a few of my favourite images to remember it The Adventures of Count Ory And now I’m off to the beach………
Have happy summers.
