November 12th semi-staged performance.
What a great night out! Really fun from start to finish. A colourful cast of characters, creative use of space and physicality, very much in keeping with the charm, action and humour we associate with the Bond franchise but.....OPERATIC!!! We can all agree the world needs more humour; Bond the Opera, tickles throughout! - Ruth Desouza
Hello James Bond team, I came to see your production on Saturday and enjoyed every moment of it!!! Story was well acted or sung out. Brilliant ideas to make simple staging attractive and exciting (car chase was one of the highlights). Musical accompaniment was rich and again full of good ideas and clarity. Singer performances were first class. What else to add beside wishing you best of luck to make this pilot run turn into a serious art project. GTA needs more productions like this!!! - Karel Tamchyna
I thought it was brilliant I am curious about how this idea unfolded. I was so excited that I picked out 5 famous arias even though I don't consider myself an opera buff. I loved the way each one was reworked to accomodate the James Bond theme. I thought it was funny! We brought 15 people, 3 of whom are NOT familiar with opera and they really enjoyed it. I loved the light humour, and the drum beats for each gun shot, I loved the reference to An Inconvenient Truth. I loved the climate change message. I loved the scenery that passed by, I loved the simplicity. I think it will be Amazing to take it on the road - Karen Catala
I loved it, it was my first opera experience and I am so glad it was this!! ingenious and funny, sassy-awesomeness!! thank you :) - Jillian Tredenick
Absolutely loved it! Funny! Witty! And the voices, OMG !!!!!!!!!! :-) Radka Tamchyna
Enjoyed the format of the show very much. The music and singing was lovely and I liked the zaniness of the subject matter! Good luck with future productions! - Morna Wales
It was my first opera, and I didn't know what to expect. But I was blown away. We it comes back, I'll definitely recommend it to my mates! - Eamonn Browne
