[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

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

Description

Set in Paris in the 1830s among a group of impoverished Bohemians, the opera centres around the tragic love affair between the seamstress, Mimi, and Rodolfo, a poet. Frivolity, joy, tenderness and sorrow are all expressed in the wonderful music of this most treasured of operas. La Bohème is a masterpiece and is undoubtedly Puccini’s finest score.

This production and cast are sensational and bring out the real heart of Puccini’s magnificent score.

Open Air Opera: The Marriage of Figaro
Jul 28 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

 

Britain’s leading outdoor touring company, Opera Brava, present The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed with a chamber ensemble against the magical backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House.

Description

One wedding and a whole lot of great singing!

It has all the ingredients of a classic piece of 18th century literature – passion, lust, betrayal, deception and ultimate forgiveness.

Yet the action takes place in just 24 hours and is liberally sprinkled with sparkling, farcical humour.

Welcome to The Marriage of Figaro, Mozart’s “perfect” opera with libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte.

With a professional cast of top-class performers, lavish costumes and period sets, the production promises first-rate quality at prices that are a fraction of Covent Garden

Exhibition: The Artist's Garden

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”9938″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

‘The Artist’s Garden’ kindly sponsored by 1st CENTRAL 

Summer Art Exhibition 1st August – 30th September 2018

Borde Hill Garden has been an inspiration for horticulturalists and artists for generations and this summer we are proud to continue this tradition by displaying the artistic response to the beauty of nature, countryside and gardens.

Opening on 1st August, visitors will be able to explore the historical Garden, renowned for its rare shrubs and champion trees, where they will discover approximately 40 works by established and up-and-coming artists inspired by both flora and fauna.

In addition to an enticing selection of garden sculptures in metal, stone, bronze resin and stained glass, the exhibition, sponsored by local employer,  1st CENTRAL, will also include a number of paintings and smaller works displayed within the Garden shop and Green Tree Gallery. Uniting the work is their common fascination with the beauty of nature, the countryside and the feelings they evoke within us.

Visitors will also be able to see elements of ‘Natural Kinaesthesia’ – an installation by floral design collective La Famille that was presented at this years Chelsea Flower Show. The installation incorporates shade-loving plants suspended within orbs and created especially for Chelsea using foliage, cuttings and greenery taken from Borde Hill Garden.
