Garsington Opera gives performances of great artistic quality in a setting of extraordinary natural beauty. Performances take place in the spectacular Opera Pavilion, which sits within the rolling landscape of the Chiltern Hills, less than an hour from London.

The 2016 season presents four masterpieces by some of the most enduring composers of all time. Tchaikovsky’s most famous and exquisite opera, Eugene Onegin, is brought to life for the first time at Garsington Opera by Michael Boyd together with our Artistic Director, Douglas Boyd. The work of Rossini makes a return to the Festival with his sparkling L’italiana in Algeri, expertly led by David Parry. Idomeneo, Mozart’s sublime early masterpiece is directed by Tim Albery and conducted by Tobias Ringborg. In addition, Garsington Opera collaborates with Rambert on a joint project, providing a rare opportunity to see Haydn’s The Creation illuminated through dance.
