Make an Aria - what the people thought

We asked participants and audience members what they thought of the performances of Make an Aria at St Fagans:

I don’t think I’ve experienced a more powerful expression of place through music theatre or any other means really ever before, and St Fagans has been brought to life for me and particularly the Castle here in a quite extraordinary way. I think it shows really the transformations that creativity and artistic expression can have and can make of a place that otherwise perhaps would not be understood as we have had the privilege of understanding it this afternoon.
