AIDA by Verdi
July 1st through July 12th, 2020
January 16th, 2020
Winslow Hall Opera is returning this year with the grandest of grand operas, and our most ambitious project to date, a production of Verdi’s AIDA. A story of doomed love and betrayal set in ancient Egypt, Aida is well outside the normal repertoire of Country House Opera; indeed, I believe this will be the first time a festival such as ours has ever staged a production of this opera in the UK. Be that as it may, Aida is a spectacular opera which I am thrilled to be presenting, even though we will have to do so without live elephants on stage!
The production will run from 1st July through 12th July 2020, with 6 performances on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 8th, 10th and 12th. As per usual, the Sunday matinees will start at 3pm and the evening performances at 6pm.
My brother Oliver, W.H.O’s Artistic Director and Conductor for the past 5 seasons, and I are in the process of finalising our choices for the cast, and Tickets will go on sale from March 15th.
I will post additional details about this year’s production in the next few weeks, but if you would like further information in the meantime, please email me on email@example.com.
With very best wishes
The Hon. Christopher Gilmour
