BERWICK FESTIVAL OPERA
Berwick Festival Opera is an entirely new opera festival, made and produced in the North East. It showcases the skills and energy of singers and musicians in the early stages of their careers, working alongside conductors and artists with international experience across the world’s major opera houses.It is a major undertaking for The Maltings team, but one that we are absolutely committed to, and proud of.
The audience and critical responses to date have both been excellent, and we are keen to realise our long term ambitions with your help.
It is a demanding festival to produce, in terms of staff time, technical resources and costs. The small scale nature of the performances guarantees a uniquely intimate experience for every member of the audience – but it also limits the number of tickets we can sell. And we are always mindful of the need to price our events affordably, and to ensure under 16s can attend for free. So to support our ambition for future festivals, please consider making a donation – as well as booking tickets. This will go directly into our development and production budget, helping all of us to enjoy truly outstanding opera made in Berwick.
