Opera fans were served up a real treat as the UKs leading touring company Opera Brava staged one of the most popular and powerful operas, Mozarts the Magic Flute.
The production was hosted by the kind permission of Lord and Lady Vestey at Stowell Park near Northleach in association with Cotswold Life and EXPO Promotions.

The performance was in support of local charity, the Leukaemia & Intensive Chemotherapy Fund (LINC) based at Cheltenham General Hospital. Originally commissioned by the Viennese music-hall impresario Emanuel Schikaneder, the Magic Flute has become one of the most widely performed and best-loved operas in the international repertory.

Now in its 21st year, Opera Brava presents a packed programme of classic productions at beautiful locations. With many top names from the national and international opera companies in its productions, Opera Brava has won the acclaim of critics and music professionals, and given pleasure to countless thousands of opera fans.
