This now well-established event in the Clonter calendar offers a great day out for all the family, from lucky finds amongst the car boots to hand-made craft and vintage clothes stalls, with other attractions, from good old-fashioned fair games and a fortune teller, to face-painting and birds of prey, with live music through the day, from Folk to Opera!
The Opera Gala consists of a variety of well-loved opera arias, duets and ensembles, followed by some musical theatre classics, in a well-established operative prelude to Christmas, and is ideal for anyone who has not been to an opera before, but would like to dip their toe in the water, before committing to a full-blown one. Each item is set into context by the director, so no prior knowledge necessary.
