“I had a wonderful time in Venice and the experience was so all-encompassing that it’s hard for me to think of anything more that could have been included. The teaching from Richard Bonynge, Jonathan Papp, James Vaughan, Pam Bullock and Annette Saunders throughout the 10 days was exceptional, and I felt I learned so much about coaching and playing opera!”
