Our 2021 season

2021 1200Px

We are committed to bringing you a glorious 2021 season. While we hope for normality, we are developing plans that will allow us to respond if this is not the case. Our goal is for the show to go on, with the safety and comfort of our audience and artists always at the fore.

4 June - 3 August 2021

We’re very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Longborough for our 2021 season. We’ve missed you enormously. Next year we extend an invitation to a warm and friendly reunion with four now much-anticipated productions:

Così fan tutte
