Intimate setting. Great voices. Skilled pianist. Variety of songs. A good degree of levity. Canapes tasty, plentiful. Fabulous, interesting venue.NDarling
We were floored from the first song, and the underground opera team continued to deliver all evening with flawless voices, laughs and yummy canapes in a gorgeous setting. Would highly recommend and would definitely go again.Pretttttygood
Opera in the Castle at Bli Bli was amazing, as expected in this delightful venue. All performers in fine voice, program of favourites a pleasure on the ears, especially as the hall acoustics are good without amplification.Henny24
