“I intend to make Fanny Price fall in love with me!”
Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park in a witty adaptation by renowned British composer Jonathan Dove and librettist Alastair Middleton; a thrilling enactment by Opera South, a professional ensemble of emerging operatic stars.
While Sir Thomas Bertram is away visiting his plantations in Antigua, his Mansfield Park Estate is thrown out of kilter by the arrival of Mary Crawford and her fickle brother Henry. Hedonists escaping the social whirl of London, they crash into the countryside and corrupt the Bertram family.
At the centre of the chaotic household, Fanny Price (Austen’s own Cinderella) watches helplessly as relationships are tested and the social order is unsettled. Will the Bertram daughters escape untarnished by Henry Crawford’s wanton advances? Will Fanny’s beloved cousin Edmund see through Mary’s superficial social charm?
