“Most intrepid and imaginative of all was Wasfi Kani’s Grange Park Opera, which produced a succession of online events culminating in the world premiere before an invited audience of Alex Woolf and David Pountney’s A Feast in the Time of Plague.”
Opera Cultural Heroine of 2020
“Things looked bleak for opera in the first months of lockdown . . . but for Wasfi Kani, the restrictions were just a challenge. She sprung into action the moment the rules allowed her some leeway and commissioned friends like Bryn Terfel and Simon Keenlyside to stream online concerts from their homes. For sheer resourceful creativity, no other company can match it.”
A gift to keep forever – a momento of not only a birthday but these quiet Lost Months.
