Thursday 6 July- Pop-up Opera in the Great Barn
After our sellout opera evening in the Granary in 2016, we are delighted to present a full opera in the much larger sixteenth century Tithe Barn in the grounds of the medieval moated Headstone Manor.
Il matrimonio segreto is an 18th century Italian comic opera with the influence of Mozart in the music. Filled with comic intrigues and confusions, the story is about following your heart and makes a perfect summer opera filled with the special Pop-up Opera humour, sparkle and fun. Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company dedicated to making opera enjoyable and inviting without losing the quality of the musical performance. You will be welcomed with a non-alcoholic cocktail and the ticket price includes finger food. Wine, spirits and beer are available from the bar run by The Great Barn, and a donation of £2 will be made to the hospice for each glass of wine sold. Early bird prices start from £30.
