Win! A pair of tickets to enjoy Bastien et Bastienne & An Incomplete Education in a beautiful outdoor setting in Alton or Fernhurst, thanks to Opera South.
“Opera is one of the most important art forms. It should be listened to and appreciated by everyone…” So said the late, great Luciano Pavarotti.
Opera South is returning to the open air!
On 16th & 17th & 24th July the team will bring you an outdoor production of Bastien & Bastienne by W. A. Mozart and An Incomplete Education by Chabrier.
This is a unique opportunity to enjoy a riotous double-bill of rarely performed one-act comedies by two of opera’s most witty and inventive composers. Mozart wrote Bastien when he was just 12 years old but his charming pastoral about a young couple who doubt the sincerity of each other’s feelings displays much of the comic and vocal flair which would flourish in his later works.
Chabrier’s An Incomplete Education is a lively and intimate operetta about a pair of inexperienced newlyweds and their awkward first night together, packed with the French composer’s signature fizz and fun.
Starring some of the UK’s most exciting emerging singers, the performances will be staged at Lower House Farm in Fernhurst (16th & 17th July) and Privett Station near Alton (24th July), directed from the keyboard by Opera South’s musical director, Mark Austin.
Both locations are wonderful: Lower House Farm’s intimate walled garden in the long-standing home of the ex-chairman of Opera South and Privett is a historic former railway station, situated within the beauty of the South Downs National Park.
Tickets for each special evening are £50, with picnics encouraged and a dress code of smart casual.
