Nevill Holt venue reveals 2015 series

Bizet’s Carmen featuring mezzo soprano star Clare Presland will be this year’s production at Nevill Holt Opera.

The shows take place in the grounds of businessman David Ross’ estate, who owns Nevill Holt Hall.

This year will be the third time that Mr Ross’ own independent team are organising events, after ten years being run by Hampshire-based Grange Park Opera.

Carmen will run on Thursday, June 25; Saturday, June 27; Sunday, June 28; Tuesday, June 30, and Thursday, July 2. It is being directed by Ashley Page and conducted by artistic director Nicholas Chalmer, reuniting the team behind last year’s production of La Bohème.
