"I really enjoyed my first experience of an opera. I didn't really know what to expect but thought that the setting, The theatre and the picnic in the grounds all made for a really great evening. I thought it might be strange to hear a story being sung but I found the singing added a lot of emotion and passion to the story, which I really liked. Jenufa was a sad tale but I was keen to know what was going to happen. I found the surtitles very useful and my mum gave me a summary of the story beforehand to help me understand it!
I am very grateful to the Musical Chairs Scheme for enabling me and my family to go free of charge, as I wouldn't otherwise have been able to go or even thought about going. "
