Waterperry Opera Festival
Thu, 25th July @ 10:00 am - Sun, 28th July @ 5:00 pm
Building on a successful first year, Waterperry Opera festival extends this year to 4 days of programming, running 25th – 28th July 2019 (details and timings to follow), with a broad range of events. From the enchanted realms of Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Purcell’s The Fairy Queen the second season will embrace the magical gardens at Waterperry and it’s intimate open-air amphitheatre.
Dove’s Mansfield Park returns for 4 performances, directed by Festival Director Rebecca Meltzer, as will family-show, Peter Rabbit’s Musical Adventure, which will again delight audiences in Waterperry’s Mary Rose Garden.
The popular Come & Sing Workshop from 2018 will return, offering anyone interested in singing with an orchestra an opportunity to give opera a go. Both the 2019 amphitheatre shows will also include pre-performance discussions, and the FREE events will incorporate a Young Artist Masterclass and a staging of Britten’s Abraham & Isaac, devised and performed by Young Artists.
