Opera in the Park at Castle Gardens was a fantastic event. Weather was perfect and so well organised. Hoping to see more events like this in the future. Great work everyone involved in bringing this event to Lisburn!
“This is fantastic!! So well put together and certainly adds some welcomed Christmas cheer! Well done to everyone involved!!” Resident at The Heathers Supported Living Service
This was an incredibly moving event. The anthem is a wonderful example of music telling the stories of those who previously felt unheard. Well done to everyone involved. Victim Support NI
As an Associate Artist with NI Opera I took advantage of a fantastic opportunity to explore the next step in my professional music career. The company facilitated platform recordings to assist my application to study at Masters level. I am indebted to NI Opera not only for this, but for their support and professional development offered to me during the Covid pandemic. Ryan Garnham
