The Marriage of Figaro at the Weald and Downland Museum

A wonderful opportunity to watch Opera Brava’s ‘The Marriage of Figaro’ by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the stunning setting of the Weald & Downland Living Museum.

One wedding and a whole lot of great singing. It has all the ingredients of a classic piece of 18th century literature — passion, lust, betrayal, deception and ultimate forgiveness. Yet the action takes place in just 24 hours and is liberally sprinkled with sparkling, farcical humour.

With a professional cast of top-class performers, lavish costumes and period sets, opera fans and newcomers to the classical entertainment are in for a real treat with this traditional production.

The Barber of Seville at the Weald and Downland Museum

A one-time only opportunity to watch Opera Brava’s ‘The Barber of Seville’ in the stunning setting of the Weald & Downland Living Museum.

This fantastic production by Bronek Pomorski brings out the Champagne Fizz of the music and will capture your heart as Count Almaviva aided by his good friend Figaro manages to woo his love Rosina away from her wicked guardian Dr Bartolo.

Thousands of people saw this work when it toured the country last year and many have asked to see it again. Written in three weeks, Rossini’s masterpiece is one of the wittiest and most immediately appealing comic operas in the repertoire today and is as fresh to the ear now as when it first burst upon its Italian audiences in 1816.

Opera Brava in its 30th year is Britain’s leading touring company. Their production of ‘The Barber of Seville’ is performed by professional and experienced national and international opera singers who have worked with major companies such as; English National Opera and Covent Garden. The performance will be sung in English.
