  • An absolute delight!

    SWANSEA City Opera's Barber of Seville is an absolute delight. If you want to give someone their first taste of opera, but find ticket prices and long journeys off putting, not to mention impenetrable plots or arty-farty reworking, then you couldn't do better than to catch Swansea City Opera.

  • Comic opera was superb!

    APART from a couple of the more famous scenes, I had never actually seen a full length opera before this so was unsure what to expect. For my first opera it couldn't have gone better — if all operas were as well delivered as this one was, I'd invest in a pair of opera glasses today!

  • Bravura performances!

    This company always delivers the goods, and when the goods is a deliciously uplifting slice of Mozart, it can be very good indeed.

  • Captivated within minutes!

    I faced Swansea City Opera’s performance of Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment on an empty stomach (well, bar a bag of crisps and half a square of millionaire’s shortbread). Only someone with full liver failure could have viewed it with a more jaundiced eye - and I was captivated within minutes!

  • A triumph in every respect!

    The work of Swansea City Opera cannot be praised too highly. They bring high quality opera to theatres which are too small or remote to receive even slightly larger companies, and give audiences the chance to hear opera as it should be heard, with excellent singers and musicians, and with unpretentious but satisfying direction. This was a great evening of entertainment and music, thoroughly enjoyable and to be unreservedly recommended.
