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.
Six singers will be accompanied by piano for Out of Africa, a mixture of Gospel, traditional South African folk music, jazz and some light opera in the Elizabethan Long Gallery, reputed to be one of the most beautiful rooms in England and blessed with perfect acoustics. Guests will be welcomed before the event with drinks in the terraced Walled Gardens which cascade down to the River Wye.
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.
Tickets: £20 (dinner only)
