Everybody Can! Opera is a mentoring platform produced by English National Opera’s (ENO) Harewood Artist Nadine Benjamin. It saw its second production at St James’s Church, Piccadilly, thrill and inspire an eager full-house of opera enthusiasts. The evening began with crowds of people inside the church and a queue reaching as far out as the streets of London. It almost seemed purposefully coordinated to tune the minds of its audience for a new production of Tosca set in present-day London.>>>
Welcome! Here’s a roundup of news, posts, bits and pieces I’ve been sharing on Social Media from the second week of January. That includes Bridge Theatre’s PR email blunders, Devoted and Disgruntled’s 13th event, and lots of interviews and reviews.

I shared some of my thoughts of the opening night of #ROHTosca with Joseph Calleja, Gerald Finley and Adrianne Pieczonka. It’s the ninth revival of Jonathan Kent’s production. (Click here.)
Come and get a history lesson at the @gatetheatre with @NinaB0wers ‘s captivating performance #Twilight1992 (here) focusing on the riots of Los Angeles in 1992.
It was National Popcorn Day on Friday 19th, so I sent out a post I wrote in 2016 discussing the effects that cinema live screen events have had on converting new audiences to opera (here).
It was the opening night of David McVicar’s revival production of Salome with Malin Bystrom and Michael Volle. I wrote about their tremendous performance here.

Without having seen Come From Away yet I'm already reading this tweet thinking 'I know, I know'. twitter.com/rochellebalboa…
Spent the whole of my lunch break reading reviews of Come From Away from bloggers. 👍 Traditional criticism is becoming harder and harder to stomach when many paper critics now seem to find petty reasons to pick holes in a show successfully spreading some good in the world.— Rochelle Bisson (@rochellebalboa) February 19, 2019
