Meet the performer

'I'm Maria and I’ve been coming to Streetwise Opera since January 2007. My favourite piece of music is Miserere by Allegri - it’s cute, short and I like singing in Latin!

'Streetwise is exciting, fun and educational. I come to the workshops because it gets me out of the house for a few hours. I get to act and to practise how to perform to a live audience. I really like the live shows - I feed off the audience.

'If you’re thinking of coming along I’d say don’t think about it, just get here. Have fun and let it all hang out.'

Meet the performer

'I've been coming to Streetwise in Newcastle for two years and my favourite piece of music we've worked on is the Soldier's Chorus. If I could be any character from an opera, I'd be someone from Faust - it's my favourite opera.

'I come to the workshops to learn to sing and have a good time. If you're thinking about coming I'd say give it a try, you’ve got nothing to lose.

'Streetwise in three words would be: fun, enjoyment, laughter.'
