Omar is one of very few individuals who is able to inspire groups of 40 school children in a morning workshop and a group of 30 adults in the evening. His professionalism is consistently of a high level as are his energy levels, and his creative work combined with the versatility of his skill set make him the perfect artist lead for a wide variety of artistic projects. Cheers at Omar's name being mentioned during the final performance from both audience and performers were justified, and all feedback from participants, audience and the local press suggests that there is a strong desire to run the project again. Our partners in Batley have been endless in their praise for what he achieved and he has since been approached for further high-profile projects within Opera North.
