OPEN-AIR OPERA AT ROTHERFIELD PARK ON 21 JUNE 2015
See the review in the Petersfield Post
Popup Opera's L'Italiana in Algeri was a huge success and, together with the raffle and Champagne Bar we managed to raise nearly £7000. This is a huge step forward for the renovation fund and we want to say a huge 'thank you' to all who have supported our fundraising efforts.
The performance was very well received by a sell-out crowd who enjoyed a beautiful early-summer sunny evening while picnicing on the lawn in the grand surroundings of Rotherfield Park. The opera itself proved amusing and entertaining - here is a selection of the audience's reaction:
"Wonderful evening, so original with the staging and wonderful voices.”
"What a wonderful evening. Great setting, wonderful performers, fantastic atmosphere – AND no rain!”
" ...a fun evening and the opera was light and entertaining"
