Press Reviews of the
Cumbria Opera Group
Venus and Adonis (2017)
Jane Bagot in the Cumberland and Westmorland Herald
A delighted audience at Penrith Methodist Church was treated to a stunning performance of John Blow’s opera, Venus and Adonis. The Eden Valley Opera Company, directed by their inspiring, up and coming conductor Joe Davies, gave a spirited interpretation of this one act opera. This promising young conductor expertly led his fine musicians through the many twists and turns of this tragic but entertaining Baroque drama — he held them firmly in his grasp from start to finish.
Acis and Galatea (2018)
Colin Marston in the Cumberland and Westmorland Herald
Acis and Galatea [...] maintained the high standards set already and was greatly enjoyed by a large and enthusiastic audience. As producer and musical director, Joe Davies and director Peter Law deserve congratulations for bringing such a fine work to the Eden Valley and inspiring such an uplifting performance.
