Opera In The Park, which was organised by The Royal Society of St. George and sponsored by DHL raised more than BD4,000 for people in need in Bahrain.

The operatic performance took place last Thursday.  More than 600 people set up their picnics and blankets on the grass and enjoyed listening to much-loved classical operatic arias and duets.

A portion of the proceeds from the performance will go to the Al-Rahma Center in Riffa.

Organizer Emma Garrett said, “We are thrilled that the event was so successful.  We’re especially grateful to the performers who made the event very special, giving encores and adding some comedy for the audience too.  We’re also very grateful to the American Express Bahrain Rugby Football Club in Saar who made everyone very welcome.  We’ll certainly look to hold the event again next year!”
