The Garsington season opens next weekend with new productions of Eugene Onegin and L'Italiana in Algeri. Idomeneo follows later in June. I was there yesterday afternoon to see colleagues and also some of the early stage and orchestra rehearsals of Onegin. I will say no more than I feel sure we are in for a treat!
It was a gorgeous afternoon for much of the time in the beautiful Wormsley Park, near Stokenchurch down the M40 in the direction of Oxford, which has for the last five years or so has been the home of Garsington Opera. For those of you who have never been there do try to get to the opera, or failing that to the cricket - click the link for the schedule. Wormsley has one of the prettiest cricket grounds in the country. So there is something for everyone in this beautiful corner of England, only 40 odd miles from London.
