Woodhouse Copse is an Arts and Crafts house in Surrey, with gardens originally laid out by Gertrude Jekyll, where artistic director Monika Saunders stages operas in a small indoor theatre and in an outdoor amphitheatre in the woods. Under the direction of Mauricio da Silva, Woodhouse Opera runs Baroque Academies where young singers come together to rehearse and perform. In 2017 they are presenting two baroque operas at Woodhouse Copse. Francesco Cavalli's La Calisto (on 22 and 23 April 2017), and Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie. Whilst in September they are performing Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore.
Earlier in 2016 we saw a terrific performance of Lully's Armide staged at Woodhouse, you can read my review on this blog.
