CONTACT DETAILS FOR THIS GROUP:

We are currently seeking an organizer for this group - see below.

Dear Friends,
As most of you will know, the group used to book discounted tickets at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth, for two top-class touring opera companies, WNO in the Spring and Glyndebourne in November. Being organiser(s) therefore does not involve much activity outside these two events. We have developed a good routine (booking tickets (maximum discount for 40+ people), ordering the coach, booking the restaurant (View Pan Asian across from the theatre), getting payments in and escorting the group). It is a very enjoyable and relatively hassle-free way of seeing live opera and I hope it can continue. I have a fat file full of bumf from past operas as well as being happy to explain in detail what is involved. We do ideally need two people to share the job. Please do seriously consider volunteering.

Bill Nichols has circulated a very detailed email to the Group, proposing a visit to the WNO production of The Magic Flute in Plymouth next April. He points out:

I had thought to leave this until after Christmas, but booking is already open and selling well. The Magic Flute is a popular choice, and apparently most of the Circle seats have gone. Plenty left in the Upper Circle, and a selection in the Stalls.

If you need a copy of his email, please contact him on this email address.
