Our 2021 season

2021 1200Px

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 these now much anticipated productions:


RICHARD WAGNER

Die Walküre

Longborough's esteemed Wagnerian conductor Anthony Negus joins director Amy Lane. The cast includes Lee Bisset making her role debut as Brünnhilde - following her acclaimed performance as Isolde here in 2017.


WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART

Così fan tutte

Conductor Lesley Anne Sammons and director Sam Brown bring to life Mozart’s much-loved Così fan tutte. Lesley Anne conducts the Barefoot Band in her own re-orchestration of the opera, in an English translation.


CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI

The Return of Ulysses

The Longborough directing debut of our Artistic Director Polly Graham, conducted by Robert Howarth and performed on period instruments. As a taste of what's to come, watch the short animated film by illustrator Amber Cooper-Davies, directed by Polly.


LEOŠ JANÁČEK

The Cunning Little Vixen

Janáček’s beautiful take on the cycle of life, performed by our Emerging Artists: a programme that offers performance opportunities to singers at the beginning of their careers. Conducted by Justin Brown and directed by Olivia Fuchs, our production features the local children of the Longborough Youth Chorus.


​Our plans for the Ring

We are intending keep to 2023 for the full cycle. This will mean performing Götterdämmerung in 2022; and the full cycle, including a new production of Siegfried, in 2023.
