Take a seat at the Garsington Opera, Wormsley. Performances take place in the spectacular Opera Pavilion which sits within the rolling landscape of the Chiltern Hills, less than an hour from London. Before the performance, patrons can enjoy the gardens and grounds of the Wormsley Estate, owned by the Getty family, take afternoon tea and drink champagne. During the long dinner interval picnics can be taken down to the lake or patrons can have dinner in in the elegant marquee overlooking the famous cricket ground. Performances resume as the evening light begins to fade and end by 10.15pm. For more information, go to www.garsingtonopera.org.
