My boyfriend wants to put on an opera in an alternative way – he needs help – any suggestions? 

Convener(s): Stuart 

Participants: Just me

Summary of discussion, conclusions and/or recommendations:

There was no discussion at the session itself – there being only me there but prior to the session I did have a short discussion with Shanti on the subject. She gave a few helpful suggestions including possible venues and participants from the alternative scene and the idea that as mainstream opera companies are always looking to expand their audience base they may like to get involved at some level to encourage normally non-opera going members of the public who patronize the alternative venues to reconsider the medium. These suggestions will be very much appreciated by the boyf.
