Free and Subsidised Tickets for School Children, the Elderly and Schools Opera Workshops
1,100 tickets were taken up by young people between the ages of 9 and 18 for the 42 public performances in 2008. Our visits to Day Care Centres for the Elderly expanded to 6 in 2008 and will increase to 10 in the months ahead. Two hundred and sixty three elderly people who would not normally have access to opera took up the subsidised £10 seats through various charities such as Open Age and Sixty Plus. Four hundred and twenty seats will be offered in 2009.
