This year marks our 14th annual operatic production with Opera a la Carte who will be returning to the Ballroom with their wonderful production of Rigoletto on 9th and 10th of June.
Rigoletto is one of Verdi’s finest operas and a perfect evening of love, lust and intrigue. The story of the Duke of Mantua’s court jester Rigoletto is a tale full of decadence and innocence. After receiving a curse Rigoletto’s life is changed forever as his degenerate working world collides with the pious world of his daughter Gilda.
A pre-Raphaelite inspired production that is set in 1850 and based on Victor Hugo’s ‘L’roi s’amuse (the King amuses himself). This fully staged, dramatic production will be sung in Italian and performed in the round. Musical direction from the piano will be by Benjamin Woodward.
£50.00 Standard Ticket includes a drinks reception from 6.30pm. During the hour long interval picnics may be enjoyed in the beautiful and extensive gardens.
£85.00 Premium Ticket includes a drinks reception from 6.30pm, seats in the first few rows for the performance and a two-course supper during the interval, served in the Dining Room and Main Hall of Walcot.
