Opera highlights from the Theatre in the Woods

A new opera house built across the fields from Cranmore School is too good an opportunity to miss and several of our pupils have performed, since the opening in 2017, in productions of Tosca, Oklahoma in 2108 and this year, Don Carlo and Porgy & Bess.

Opening night of this year’s season in a four-tiered horseshoe auditorium based on La Scala, Milan crouched in the walled grounds of West Horsley Place, Surrey was a night to remember for our lucky musicians with marvellous performances by a star cast including Leonardo Capalbo, Brett Polegato, Ruxandra Donose and Marina Costa Jackson.
