Cape Town Opera - Grace Notes

Haddon Hall, Bakewellbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Young African voices will bring fresh magic to Derbyshire’s historic Haddon Hall in July.

The medieval fortified manor house, home of Lord and Lady Edward Manners, will see the young stars of Cape Town Opera present two concerts which will bring traditional African culture to new audiences in a 900 year-old setting.

Grace Notes will see the singers perform a programme of sacred music from around the globe, in the candle-lit Norman Chapel following a drinks reception in the Banqueting Hall.

Haddon Hall has ‘starred’ in many TV shows and Hollywood films, from the fantasy adventure The Princess Bride to three versions of Jane Eyre, including Franco Zeffirelli’s masterpiece.

Please be aware that while the acoustics in the medieval Chapel are wonderful, in some seats visibility is restricted.
