"Opera On A Shoestring have a reputation for doing exactly what they say on the tin: presenting quality operatic productions on the tiniest of budgets. A packed Cottier Theatre was testament to the expectations the company generates... The audience was not disappointed."
- Mark Brown in The Scotsman on Carmen
A Viennese Whirl at Cowal Music Club, January 2010
"A well-balanced programme, an ever-present atmosphere of good fun and top class professional performances from singers and pianist were what made this a night to remember."
- The Galloway News on A Viennese Whirl
“The real strength of Opera On A Shoestring is collective. They have succeeded in consistently delivering a strong flavour of authentic opera which transcends the limitations of staging and the lack of orchestral accompaniment through a focus on quality singing and a genuine commitment to the music.”
– Kenny Mathieson in the Inverness Courier on An Evening In Paris
