Shipley Arts Festival: Opera Holloway perform at Sullington Tithe Barn
Opera Holloway return to Shipley Arts Festival with Puccini’s ‘La Boheme’, a thrilling and passionate portrayal of a Parisian love story as depicted by one of Opera’s true legends.
Conducted by Lewis Gaston and directed by Fiona Williams, we follow the unfolding love story of Mimi and Rudolfo from its joyous beginnings to the bitter end.
The performance features returning artists Samuel Oram, Callie Gaston and Lorena Paz who have all received wonderful reviews performing with Opera Holloway in the past few years.
Puccini wrote ‘La Boheme’ in 1896 when Sullington Barn would have been in agricultural use having originated from mediaeval times. In 2013 the barn and its magnificent 17th century roof were restored with financial assistance and historical advice from Natural England and the venue is sure to delight audiences as they enjoy the moving performance.
Tickets: £21.50 (interval tea and cakes available in The Old Workshop café). Times: 4.30pm-7.30pm.
Shipley Arts Festival is sponsored by Toovey’s, Kreston Reeves, NFU Mutual, Nyetimber, Rossana and Wakefields.
