G&S at West Green House
Every year an area of the gardens of the famous West Green House in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire are transformed into a theatre to stage some of the best professional operas, but there are also several other parts of the gardens and inside the enormous greenhouse too, where afternoon concerts are held.
For the 3rd year running we were invited back last year to give one of these concerts on Sunday 23rd June. The weather wasn’t too good and so the event was held in the greenhouse rather than outside.
In 2011 and 2012 we performed a costumed concert version of a single opera (photos
here), but last year we did the best bits from 3 of the operas -
Here are a few photographs from the day.
If you are in the Bournemouth area and want to see what’s going on at the moment, then a good site is ‘WhereCanWeGo’ and some of the current events from that source are shown below. If nothing is showing, the site is not transmitting!
In 2012 it was cold and wet and we were inside the enormous greenhouse for our second visit and a production of Patience. Click the photograph to see some more pictures.
