Waterperry Opera Festival 2020, UK
August 15 - August 16
Just like most festivals and events in the UK this summer, the Waterperry Opera Festival has faced numerous challenges. However, the team has devised an innovative approach to schedule a couple of operas this summer, including Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte, in the gardens of Waterperry House on 15 and 16 August.
The company will perform two operas – Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte and Ariel by Jonathan Doyle. Tickets range from £8 to £30 (discounts for students and under18s).
Tickets for Cosi Fan Tutte will be in socially-distanced pods. While for Ariel, people will be allocated standing tickets only for the 30-minute programme.
Organisers have implemented a series of measures to ensure both the safety and comfort of audience. These include one-way routes, social distancing measures, enhanced cleaning, paperless ticketing and restricted number of attendees.
