BOOK PRIORITY TICKETS

Welcome to Telegraph subscribers
You’ve come to the right place to book priority tickets for Grange Park Opera’s 2021 summer season – ahead of the public

Don Carlos

Only 23 miles from London by the Surrey Hills, guests are welcomed in the early afternoon to wander through the historic walled gardens, champagne glass in hand, exploring the grounds of the early Tudor stately home, West Horsley Place. A short walk through the ancient orchard – passing a 300-year-old mulberry tree – takes you to the five-tier full-sized opera house, The Theatre in the Woods.

Curtain up is around 6pm. There is then the long interval (lasting 90 minutes) when guests may dine in the 14th century house (where Elizabeth I stayed for a week . . . but that’s another story). Or opt for a more bucolic approach, by flinging down a rug and picnicking in one of the gardens. The choice is yours.

Telegraph subscribers can enjoy four productions with priority booking from Saturday 20 February.

More than an evening at the opera, it’s one of the experiences of the summer season.

Do come and join us.

Falstaff   Verdi
Superstar Bryn Terfel as the irrepressible Falstaff. Sensational backcloths by Italian supremo Rinaldo Rinaldi. A life-enhancing evening is guaranteed.

La Bohème   Puccini
When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall passionately in love. But their relationship is turbulent and happiness eludes them.

Ivan the Terrible  Rimsky-Korsakov
David Pountney directs a new production of Rimsky-Korsakov’s expansive gem. The tyrannical Tsar, on a wholesale pillage, discovers his long-lost love child.

The Life & Death of Alexander Litvinenko  Bolton
A world première. Alexander Litvinenko was a man who solved his own murder. This real-life story is told through a series of flashbacks and flash-forwards covering events in Russia that lead Litvinenko to seek exile and his family’s life in Muswell Hill.

There are some nights with fewer than 20 seats available. Only half the seats will be used. Specific seats (in your chosen seating area) will be allocated two weeks before the performance, in accordance with prevailing distancing.
