2014 heralded a new dawn for West Green House Opera. Following the introduction of a new auditorium in 2013, we launched of a week long programme that celebrated the fusion of wonderful music and horticultural creativity,set in the magical atmosphere for which West Green House is famous.
And of course as each evening of music concluded the garden with its water features and follies was illuminated; an unsurpassed experience.
As we reflect back over the season, we still hear the music, sense the echo’s of beautiful voices and feel the surprise of walking from a flower filled garden into a spacious and sparkling glass sided auditorium. Hansel and Gretel performed by Garsington Opera’s Young Artist was a triumph, beautifully performed on a magnificent set, whilst A Little Night Music brought to our stage a sense of humour and heartbreak ,as an exceptional cast led the audience through a tangled web of romance .The rendition of Send in the Clowns brought a lump to the throat. Many thanks to Opera Project, Garsington Opera, Blind Tiger and the individual artist that made the season such a success.
For those of you who joined us we hope you had a wonderful evening or enjoyed a Sunday lunch time picnic listening to wonderful voices. We hope to welcome you back to West Green House Opera next year.
“At West Green House the gardens and opera come together as a total package;and it’s done with a degree of stylish fantasy that takes your breath away.”
