Running Time

To be confirmed

“There are some singers who really put on a show” wrote The Arts Desk – and the sunlit voice and exuberant personality of mezzo Joyce DiDonato have made her a true vocal superstar.

Her “Favourite Things” are dazzling operatic arias from the 17th and 18th centuries, and with the dynamic period instrument ensemble il pomo d’oro (motto, “We have the guts!”), make no mistake: her Saffron Hall debut should bring the house down.

Generously supported by Adrian Frost, Nikki Edge and David & Jane Richardson

Hot food also available before the show.

Shuttle Bus
