Cloudehill is privileged to present
Nellie in Her Own Write
with Artists from the Melba Opera Trust
Cloudehill hosting the Melba Opera Trust follows on from the fabulous recital we held last January with singers from the Victorian Opera. You can enjoy a taste of this by clicking the image below. This footage is courtesy of hours filming and weeks at his computer by Mike Hammer, a good friend of Cloudehill. Thankyou Mike! Turn your sound system up a little and you’ll appreciate how effectively our circular beech hedge creates just the right acoustic environment to appreciate opera. And it is good the space is not big. Outdoor opera too often means sitting squashed in a football-crowd sized audience battered by sound-distorting amplifiers. Here we offer the singers themselves, singing their hearts out just metres away.

Regulars to our twilight events know to come early. We recommend arriving 5pm, perhaps 5.30. Bring a picnic and bottle of wine, low fold-up (beach) chairs & spare warm clothing (just in case). Over the years we have found low evening light is the loveliest time to explore the gardens and a twilight performance in the theatre makes the occasion very special.
