Audience review of performance at Waterperry Gardens – July 2018…
“The first time I saw Mozart’s The Magic Flute was at least twenty five years ago, a concert performance at the Proms. I fell in love with it there and then and have never forgotten it. I suspect, in a similar number of years time, my children will feel the same.
