All performances are under cover and main stage performances include a 70-minute dining interval.

Artistic director Kirsty Hopkins said: "At West Green House Opera we offer a completely unique theatrical experience to our audiences. Our Theatre on the Lake with the stunning West Green House Gardens lit behind the stage is so spectacular that more and more world class singers are coming to sing in our productions. 

"This year we have performers joining us who regularly sing at Covent Garden, English National Opera, The New York Met and London’s West End. We also pride ourselves on working with the hottest young artists giving them vital experience at the beginning of their careers. Every year we’re getting more ambitious with our productions, bringing outstanding evenings of entertainment to our corner of Hampshire."

Kirsty added: "The setting of the lovely gardens is totally idyllic. Audiences sit in a covered glass pavilion affording an incredible view of the stage which is built on the island on our lake and as the music wafts into the night air, swans and geese glide by on the water.”
