ABOUT GRANGE PARK OPERA
In less than two decades, Grange Park Opera has established itself as one of Europe’s leading opera festivals. It has become synonymous not only with artistic excellence, but also the warmth of the relationship shared between loyal audiences, supporters and artists. Not without reason has it become known in the opera world as ‘a small jewel with big performances’.
From 1998-2016 Grange Park Opera was resident at The Grange in Hampshire, where a summer arts festival is now organised by a newly formed organisation called The Grange Festival, which is independent of Grange Park Opera. For further details of The Grange Festival, please visit their website.
From 2017, we are relocating to West Horsley Place, recently inherited by the author Bamber Gascoigne and managed by the Mary Roxburghe Trust.
Glowing brick façades, framed by antique box hedges and walled gardens, sit in the midst of a 300-acre estate slumbering in the Surrey countryside. Behind the house, an ancient orchard opens into a wooded glade. This is to become the setting for a new cultural venue, the Theatre in the Woods. Here we will realise the next chapter in our quest to make world-class performing art accessible to all.
