International performers in Sark for Opera concert

International performers have been taking to a much smaller stage than they are used to for the 4th annual opera concert in Sark.

Most of the artists usually perform at institutions like the English National Opera, but this weekend they are brightening up various venues across the island instead.

One of the brains behind it says Sark is the perfect place for it - and the island continues to inspire him each time he comes.

I think as soon as you come off the boat there's something peaceful and magical, and having been here half a dozen times more now there's a stillness, there is something very magical about the place.

I've always said that I was going to write one of my books here so I could actually switch off from the day-to-day nonsense. It hasn't quite happened yet, but I'm going to find a little corner and come and do that one day.

– Mark Llewelyn Evans, Artistic Director of Sark Opera
