Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 July from 3.00pm, Longhope, Alton, Hampshire
Longhope Opera is a recently established country house opera festival near Alton. At the start of July, as we emerge from the pandemic, Longhope Opera will present a production of Rossini’s comic masterpiece Il turco in Italia, in collaboration with Scherzo Ensemble, on the 3rd and 4th of July. Tickets are free – although donations are encouraged. Attendees are guests at Longhope for the day, which includes a woodland recital, drinks reception, the opera, and a picnic dinner during the interval overlooking the South Downs.
The day begins at 3pm with an orchestral recital by Scherzo Ensemble, before the main event, Il turco, beginning at 6pm.
