The Big Screen Portsmouth Posts Its Highest Attendance For The Royal Opera Performances
This year has proved to be the most successful year since starting at the Big Screen (almost 4 years ago) with the free event screenings of The Royal Opera House performances.
For the second year now, we screened two Operas; La Boheme and Don Giovanni as well as beaming The Royal Ballet's Swan Lake. Usually, we would only screen three opera showings but, the ballet has proved to be nothing short of a success, being the most attended across both years.
The events provide a free way to experience the Opera, to those who may be unable to travel to London to watch the shows in the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. It brings culture to the city of Portsmouth as well as adds a great atmosphere to the Guildhall Square.
I'm very keen for us to keep running these events and I hope that BP continue their sponsorship with the Royal Opera house to ensure these their future-proofing.
