Open Air Opera: La Traviata
Jul 26 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Open Air Opera: La Traviata

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_column_text]The perfect gift for Christmas…

Britain’s leading outdoor touring company, Opera Brava, present La Traviata by Verdi, performed with a chamber ensemble against the magical backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House.

Description
From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heart breaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas.

Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s fantastic melodies include the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.

Christopher Lane  production for Opera Brava will bring out all the emotional colour, from the first discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion.

The performance will be sung in English.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10436″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10437″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Book Now” color=”primary” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.myonlinebooking.co.uk%2Fbordehill%2Fbuy.aspx%3Ftid%3D51||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]Booking essential

Open Air Opera: The Barber of Seville

Open Air Opera: The Barber of Seville

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_column_text]The perfect gift for Christmas…

Britain’s leading outdoor touring company, Opera Brava, present The Barber of Seville by G. Rossini, performed with a chamber ensemble against the magical backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House.

Description
Written in three weeks, Rossini’s masterpiece is one of the wittiest and most immediately appealing comic operas in the repertoire today and is as fresh to the ear now as when it first burst upon it’s Italian audiences in 1816. On first hearing, the utter joy of one melodic masterpiece flowing into the next is thrilling to any audience.  As the plot unfolds and is dramatically told through Rossini’s brilliant musical structure, it helps us to understand, in part, the Barber’s special place in the history of opera.

Opera Brava in its 31st year is Britains leading touring opera company. Their production of “The Barber of Seville” is performed by professional and experienced national and international opera singers who have worked with major companies such as; English National Opera and Covent Garden. The performance will be sung in English.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10411″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10412″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Book Now” color=”primary” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.myonlinebooking.co.uk%2Fbordehill%2Fbuy.aspx%3Ftid%3D52||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]Booking essential

  • Thank you all for a lovely opera of The Barber of Seville yesterday at Hever Castle, the talent displayed was awesome.
  • “I took my 13-year old to see the Barber of Seville at Leatherhead. She’s been clutching the programme ever since, and telling everyone about it. From the minute the music struck up, she started grinning and never stopped until we left. Then she said she’d like to go again!” – Guest feedback.
  • If you haven’t seen this production yet then ITS A MUST
