What the audience thought...

We've been collecting feedback from the people who came to see our exclusive Sun readers' performance of Rigoletto on 9 May. Here's what they thought of the show:


'It was nice to do something totally different for a night out. There was much more drama in this than many movies of TV shows we watch.'

Murdo McKinnon, 17


'I thought the characters were amazing. My favourite was Rigoletto's daughter, Gilda.'

Lee Ramsay, 18


'The whole performance, from the production to the lighting to the singing, could easily match one of our T in the Park headliners like Beyonce. It was a tremendous show.'

Geoff Ellis, CEO, DF Concerts


'This was my first opera and I was blown away.'

David Reilly, 54


'I fell in love with opera after getting my Scottish Sun tickets last year [for La bohème] and this one was even better.'

Lilly Docherty, 65


'I thought it was a great introduction to opera for our children. It shows them there is so much more to entertainment than just the telly or games consoles.'

Patricia, 48


'I've always wanted to go to a show here but never took the time. But...I thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did - it was remarkable.'

Barry Reilly, 37


'It lived up to all our expectations - it was brilliant.'

Eileen, 68


'The ending was fantastic. I didn't shed a tear but I wasn't far away!'

Ian, 66


'I'll definitely be going back to see something else.'

Mark Stewart, 20


'We went to La bohème last year and enjoyed it so much we snapped up tickets as soon as they were up for grabs. It was excellent. Nadine Livingston's singing as Gilda was great - and she looked stunning.'

Jackie, 49
