Rokk Media at the Opera
Rokk Media’s Managing Director Adam Stone and Non-Executive Director Meredydd Jones plus guests had a wonderful time at Ugbrooke House on Saturday 22 July, watching Carmen performed by the New Devon Opera. As a sponsor, Rokk Media, who built and donated their website, were treated royally as VIP guests of chairwoman – Linda Hughes.
Adam commented after the performance; “The opera was breathtaking. If you’ve never experienced the power and passion of a live opera accompanied by a full orchestra you will have to travel a great distance indeed to see anything as good as this.”
“We saw Carmen performed in the gorgeous grounds of Ugbrooke House, home to Lord and Lady Clifton (whom we sat beside) – a perfect setting. In a massive 500 seater marquee, complete with chandeliers where we were fortunate to have front-row seats. Half way through the first half performance a part of the marquee was thrown open to allow the sun to stream in from across the rolling countryside. Minutes later a pony and trap trotted in through the side transporting a member of the cast. A lovely moment which drew lots of oohs from the crowd.”
“During the interval we sat outside watching the sun sun set behind the Devon trees with a delicious picnic provided by The Elizabethan restaurant of Newton Abbot.”
“After the finale we were invited back in to Ugbrooke House to meet the cast and crew who were really lovely and welcoming. Given they’d just spent the last two hours singing their hearts out we thought it was very gracious of them. A fitting end to a magical evening of profesional first class opera.”
Carmen is performing on the23 July 2011 for one more time at Ugbrooke House before moving on to a venue in Dartmouth and then on to Budleigh Salterton for the end of it’s six performances.
All proceeds from the performances go to supporting local opera, and Sense, a local charity for deaf/blind children.

“We recruited Rokk Media to develop a website for our European project, VALMER. It was a challenging brief as we wanted to be able to edit the website, yet develop some more advanced features which required more than simple ‘out of the box’ solutions. Rokk really listened to what we wanted, and went out of their way to understand our project in order to deliver a website that suited our needs. Project management was excellent, and Hannah was always quick to respond to any communications. We are absolutely delighted with our website, which is both stylish and functional, and would have no hesitation in recommending Rokk Media.”Ness Smith
