A Passport to Greece

 

Book your ticket to Greece

This summer Wedmore Opera will be offering everyone their very own Passport to Greece.

On 12 and 13 July the sights and sounds of that gloriously romantic country can be enjoyed right here in Wedmore; and you won’t even need to pack an overnight bag!

Instead, Wedmore Opera  will provide an evening packed full with wonderful musical and operatic items with a distinctly Greek flavour, as well as some deliciously appropriate mezze, followed by a Greek-inspired meal conjured up by legendary local chef Nick Armitage.   All for a very reasonable £20 per person!

During the first half of the evening you can relax with a few mezze and enjoy a selection of the most beautifully moving pieces for chorus and soloists from Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.

After the interval (and a trip to the bar?) the mood changes, leaving tragedy in the past and whisking you forward several centuries to a lighter, more modern country reminiscent of sun-soaked holidays and sparkling turquoise seas. Finally, with your senses already tingling to the atmosphere of a magical Aegean evening, what better way to end the night than with a meal fit for the gods? Even Zeus would approve the menu that Nick has planned.

Cheers! (Εις υγείαν!)

Future Plans – 2019 & 2020!

We are pleased to announce that we will be  performing Orpheus and Euridice, a wonderful opera by Christoph Gluck, in Wedmore Hall in July 2020.

Our 2019 efforts will all be directed to raising a cast, chorus and production team for this, as well as fund raising.   If you are interested in becoming a Patron or would like to consider sponsoring this prestigious Opera – click here .

To kick off our fund-raising,  on 12th & 13th July 2019, we’re going to hold one of our exciting themed evening; we’ve done French & Italian evenings so this time it will be a Greek themed evening!

Ticket availability will be announced soon.
