Jonathan Dove’s chamber opera Mansfield Park, based on Jane Austen’s beloved novel, returns to Waterperry Opera Festival in July after a sell-out run and 5-star reviews in 2018. Performed in the regency ballroom of Waterperry House, Oxfordshire, this intimate production of Mansfield Park is presented just as the composer intended.
“I had always imagined Mansfield Park needing no scenery, just a country house of the right period, and Waterperry Opera Festival made this dream come true in the most fantastic way with their deliciously stylish production, ingeniously directed by Rebecca Meltzer with great humour and feeling.”
Jonathan is also newly appointed Honorary Patron of Waterperry Opera Festival.
Performances run 25 – 28 July 2019.
Tickets are available from the Waterperry Opera Festival website
