About the Event
Wild Arts presents a magical summer's evening of opera raising funds for The Laurie Todd Foundation in his lovely garden in Surrey. See programme...
Follow four characters’ journeys through a kaleidoscope of arias, duets, and ensembles in this entertaining evening of opera and musicals, performed by four stunning young singers and five fine chamber musicians.
You are welcome to arrive from 6:30pm for a glass of prosecco which is included in your ticket price. Please bring a picnic feast to enjoy during the opera, and rugs and chairs to make yourselves comfortable. The performance will start at 7pm, with a 45 minute interval. Carriages from 9:30pm.
We are expecting a beautiful summer's evening, but if the weather is not kind, the performance will be inside the house.
The evening is held in honour of Laurie Todd who died of Oesophageal Cancer 6 weeks after diagnosis. The Foundation is funding research into Early Diagnosis to save lives.
Thank you very much in advance for your support and we look forward to seeing you for a wonderful evening. Parking and practical details will be in the ticket confirmation email.
