GARSINGTON OPERA ORCHESTRA, CHORUS & CHILDREN’S CHORUS
*PEACE IN OUR TIME?
In this First World War centenary year, a special commemorative day on 5 July, Peace in our Time? will focus on Fidelio’s libertarian ideas and will feature talks, master classes, a recital by cellist Steven Isserlis and much more.  It will culminate in a commemorative concert including Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, with the Garsington Opera Orchestra on stage for the very first time.
LIVE SHOW RELAY
For the third year running, East Lindsey District Council will relay a Garsington Opera production on to the beach at Skegness as part of the SO Festival.  In 2014 it will be Offenbach’s Vert-Vert.
YOUNG ARTISTS PROGRAMME
As part of the West Green House opera season, young singers from the Garsington Opera Emerging Artists programme will present a revival of the acclaimed 2013 production of Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel on 26 & 27 July 2014.  Director Olivia Fuchs’ refreshing interpretation will feature some of the brightest and best of Garsington Opera’s young singers, including many who have sung in the chorus or understudied in the main season.
