A summer festival like nothing you have seen before. Experience world-class opera in a spectacular English country house setting.

Hidden in the orangerie of the neo-classical ruin of The Grange in Hampshire in the south west of England is an extraordinary surprise: a beautiful modern opera house.

The Grange sits proudly on its grassy plinth surveying its secret Arcadian valley. A visit to The Grange Festival to see an opera is also a visit to this unforgettable setting, a grand Greek temple in its picturesque private park.

You can stroll around the park, wander into the house, sip sparkling wine from The Grange’s own vineyard on our Festival portico bar, dine in the house or sup in the park at your unhurried leisure during the long interval of the performance, and linger long after it has ended into the evening twilight.

The Grange Festival makes the most of all the unique opportunities which this historic location offers. When you come to the opera they are all yours to savour as well.

As you take your seats amidst the elegance of the opera theatre, expect world class performances of opera and dance curated by Artistic Director Michael Chance CBE, who is dedicated to bringing the very best opera and dance to this unusual setting near Winchester.

Don’t miss this highlight of the British summer season.
