Co-Opera's The Barber of Seville a sell-out

THE Richmond Valley’s free opera event, Co-Opera’s The Barber of Seville, has booked out within the space of three weeks due to popular demand.

Sponsored by Richmond Valley Council, the event will be held in the Casino Civic Hall on Tuesday 10 April.

Council’s General Manager Vaughan Macdonald said he predicted the opera would be popular, as interest from attendees had grown since the program was introduced in 2013.

However, Mr Macdonald said he was surprised by how quickly the tickets booked out.

“It’s a testament to the desire of Richmond Valley residents for more cultural events, and Council looks forward to bringing more successful events to the region,” he said.

A confirmation email will be sent to all those who registered prior to being fully booked.
