Since I started my collaboration with the international opera company based in Italy "Gli Amici di Fritz" I found that some of my favourite performances have been the ones done in small villages and towns, where opera isn't normally performed. That's why I decided to do the same for villages in Devon as it's something I'm sure people will enjoy! You'll be able to have a lovely evening of thrilling and beautiful music, not far from home and without thinking about having to drive far or worry about parking.
