A magical evening of opera, performed by world-class singers and a mini orchestra in the beautiful gardens at Rectory Farmhouse in aid of the Lawrence Home Nursing Team. Follow four characters’ journeys through a kaleidoscope of arias, duets, and ensembles in this entertaining evening of opera and musicals, performed by professional singers and chamber musicians.

Music by Handel, Mozart, the great bel canto Italian opera composers, and Rodgers & Hammerstein, plus some surprises and unusual gems from Beethoven’s Fidelio to the sheer pizzazz of the final number from Verdi’s Falstaff and the caustic wit of Sondheim’s lyrics.

The gardens will be open from 5 pm for you to find the perfect spot, explore the gardens and set up your picnic. We will provide some chairs but guests are encouraged to bring their own rugs or deck chairs.  In case of inclement weather, the Opera Evening will go ahead in St Kenelm’s Church, Church Enstone.

The performance will commence at 7 pm with an hour’s interval.
