About Mansfield Park
Our 5* sell-out production of Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park is back for one last hurrah at the festival this year. With performances taking place in the wonderfully intimate Waterperry House Ballroom tickets won’t be around for long!
The intimate production brings audiences right into the centre of the action. Perfect for Austen and music lovers alike, be prepared to be whisked away by 10 singers performing as an ensemble of loveable characters pulling at our heartstrings and making us laugh-out-loud.

This production will showcase some of the UK’s most outstanding young operatic talent, alongside our 2023 Young Artists and the acclaimed Waterperry orchestra in a powerful, modern vision of Bizet’s Carmen.
Carmen‘s drive to live freely and independently brings her into deadly conflict with the world of male violence and control, as those who desire her seek to destroy her.
This will be performed in our purpose-built 500-seater outdoor theatre which is set on the Waterperry Front Lawn. The grand house façade creates the perfect backdrop for an evening high drama and sublime opera. Action takes place from 6:30pm in daylight and is transformed as the sun sets and the night grips the drama, and our heartstrings!
