Opera in the Castle 2018

18th July

The scene is set for an enthralling and engaging evening of opera held within the wonderful surroundings of the Henry VIII Banqueting Hall. This year’s fully staged production will be a Mozart double bill: Bastien & Bastienne and The Impresario, two delicious one act comedies with gorgeous music, in which a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other and a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna.

This intimate opera experience for residential guests invites you to arrive from 3pm to check into your Castle bedroom and enjoy the estate before assembling for drinks in the Library at 5.30pm. Surrounded by fine porcelain and Aubusson tapestries, early dinner will be served in the exquisite Castle Dining Room, ensuring you have plenty of time to enjoy the delicious two-course meal before the performance begins. Save a small appetite for afterwards, when sweet and savoury snacks will be served in the Drawing Rooms, with coffee available and a fully stocked pay bar.

Retire to your luxurious Castle bedroom and awake to wonderful views across the moat and the prospect of a full English breakfast in the Castle Dining Room.
