Audience Feedback:

It was incredible, very moving, the singing and the intensity and emotional involvement of the performers made it unlike any opera performance I have ever seen. It was wonderful sitting in the centre of the church with it happening all around us.

No words can describe this amazing and moving Masterpiece.Well done, ten thousand times and thank you for all the emotions stirred…I keep thinking of Simon’s mum and her courage in letting him go,pushing him towards life! What a beautiful piece of history you all gifted us with!

The whole world should see this opera. What an inspiring story and what total commitment from all the performers!

It was so powerful and moving. Beautiful music by Howard Moody.

Incredibly moving, I cried on and off through the whole thing! amazing! well done Battle Festival for believing in this project!

What a fantastic performance of #PUSH last night. Standing ovation well-deserved.

This new opera deserves a greater audience and should be compulsory viewing by all adults and children, to ensure that such events must never again be allowed to happen.I urge you to try to attend, you will not be disappointed and I guarantee your life will be enriched by the story and experience you will enjoy.

That was amazing, so moving, so beautiful, so emotional. What an inspiring man.
