West Green House Opera – July 23rd to July 31st
Tickets still available for all performances but going fast!
There can be few more beautiful settings for country house opera at its elegant best than the glorious gardens at West Green. Applauded by national music critics last year for its ‘horticultural splendour‘ and recognised as being ‘almost painfully beautiful’, the gardens provide a perfect backdrop for a week of professionally produced opera and music.
Highlights this year include new productions of ‘La Traviata‘ and ‘Cosi fan tutte‘ plus special concerts featuring, among others, national treasure and passionate opera lover Alan Titchmarsh. Opera legend Sir Thomas Allen comes to West Green for one night only and acclaimed performer Maureen Lipman will be our guest for the very popular Celebrity Lunch. All performances take place under cover and picnics are welcomed in the Lakefield for every evening performance. Full details, with online booking and Box Office numbers, can be found at http://westgreenhouseopera.co.uk
See our Events Page for our other forthcoming events.

Picnics are only permitted outside the main entrance gate, either in the Old Orchard which is adjacent to the Greenhouses or in the car park. Please ensure you take all your litter home with you.
