Location: Waterperry Lily Pond

Duration: 30 minutes

2022 is an exciting year for Waterperry Opera Festival as they celebrate their 5th Anniversary with 8 imaginative productions from Friday 12th – Saturday 20th August.

Jonathan Dove’s FIGURES IN THE GARDEN sits flawlessly as an evening’s prequel to our headlining opera THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO. First commissioned by Glyndebourne to mark the bicentenary of Mozart’s birth, Dove explores alternative scenarios for Da Ponte’s characters drawing on musical ideas from Mozart’s operatic score. This production sees a collaboration between dance students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and young local musicians from Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra, who will be pairing up with mentors from our Waterperry Ensemble.

If you feel intrigued by Dove’s take on The Marriage of Figaro, why not find out what happens by seeing them both.
