Talk: The Nightmare of Running an Opera Company
Grange Park Opera was founded in 1998 by Wasfi Kani, CBE. Since then, it has performed to over 300,000 people with more than 75 productions and 450 performances, during the course of 22 festivals. Productions take place at the Theatre in the Woods, a five-tiered, 700-seat opera house on the estate of the 14th century West Horsley Place, which was inherited by Bamber Gascoigne from his aunt, the Duchess of Roxburghe. The £11.5m cost of the building – was raised by Kani herself from private donations in just one year. In this talk, Kani explains the highlights of her journey creating a new Opera Company from scratch.
Saturday 24th February @ 3:00pm & 7:30pm
