Local IT systems provider ABC Networking is again supporting Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival.
This year the company is supporting OperaUpClose’s performance of La Bohème that will take place as part of the Festival on Sunday 5 June at Salisbury Playhouse.
The Olivier Award-winning version of Puccini’s opera follows the turbulent lives of a group of idealistic graduates. Full of emotion, this 21st century interpretation of La Bohème is performed in a new English translation by Robin Norton-Hale and with piano accompaniment.
Festival director Toby Smith said: “We are delighted to be working with the great team at ABC Networking as they continue their generous support of the Festival, this year sponsoring the acclaimed OperaUpClose’s performance of La Bohème. With the Festival requiring around £400,000 beyond public subsidy and box office income, the benefit from continued support facilitates the expansive offering of arts we bring to Salisbury”.
ABC Networking director Emma McDonald said: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s Festival for the 11th year running. This year I’ve gone with my heart and chosen to sponsor OperaUpClose: La Bohème. I am passionate about opera and I hope that this accessible and fresh-faced production will draw in an audience of both established opera lovers and newbies alike.
At ABC Networking we appreciate how much the Festival brings to Salisbury, to its commerce and reputation as a top place to visit in the UK. We are glad that our expertise in technology, being very much not arts related, can make such a positive impact on the smooth running of the Festival, year on year.
ABC Networking continues to provide the Festival with IT strategy, service, support and business continuity. What makes us different is our partnership with our clients, with whom we have a trusted relationship, and doing what we do best so they can focus on doing what they do best.”
