The service from volunteers was outstanding…everything was so organised!
I will find it quite difficult to restrain myself till next year. If you would let me know the programme for the weekend whenever you can, I can start to make arrangements. I would hope to convince a few others to make the pilgrimage next year. Again, my thanks.
I thought the festival was absolutely outstanding! The opera, the food, the volunteers, the atmosphere- everything was superb. As an overall festival experience, it was the best I have had!!
I wanted to say thank you for all the effort you put behind the event to make it so special, it really was such a pleasant and joyful evening. Every detail was just perfect… Thank you again.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the opera, it was amazing. My friends, who had never been to Lismore Opera before, were really impressed with the production, organisation and how friendly everybody involved were.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for organising such an amazing event. We had a ball! The amount of preparation, logistics and attention to detail was clearly evident, culminating in an evening that was really something close to heaven.
