‘Things have come a long way for Northern Ireland Opera in the nearly five years since artistic director Oliver Mears inaugurated the company with his site-specific Tosca in Londonderry. There’s been, inter alia, the province’s first Wagner (The Flying Dutchman); Gerald Barry’s outta-control The Importance of Being Earnest; Britten’s Turn of the Screw touring the province and being performed by Novaya Opera in Moscow; an all-Ireland tour of a near-perfect L’elisir d’amore; a very intense Salome – all successful, attractive, engaging, varied, high production-value shows, made on the tightest of budgets, that nothing in Ireland and few companies on the mainland have matched.’ – Opera Now
