Final performance by this fabulous cast tonight in the last, sold-out performance of this production of Philip Glass and Robert Moran's 'The Juniper Tree'. It has been a fantastic experience bringing this production to the stage, directed by @cameronmenziesdirector which features a cast drawn mostly from our Artist Development Programmes. Thank you to all our amazing singers, instrumentalists, creatives, tech teams and to the @gohbelfast for partnering with us to launch their Studio Series with 'Cupid's Bow' last week and 'The Juniper Tree'. Thank you also to their excellent Front of House and Bar Teams who have been looking after our audiences so well (and inventing very delicious cocktails in homage to each show too!) Thank you also to all our brilliant audiences who have joined us for this macabre and captivating opera, with a libretto by Arthur Yorinks based on a Brothers Grimm fairytale. Our Artist Development Programme singers will be back to perform a special 'Chorus!' concert in May in the Ulster Hall - full details and ticket links coming soon... We are grateful for the support of our Principal Funder @artscouncilni and the Garrick Club Charitable Trust whose funding helps support the work of our Artist Development Programme.
