  1. Ba-ta-clan - Jacques Offenbach

A rarely performed one act delight lasting just one hour with no interval, Offenbach's first commercial success is presented in a witty new English version by director Morag Joss. Ba-ta-clan was originally written as an ascerbic commentary on the French fashion of chinoiserie and the snobbery that surrounded the desire to be au fait with the latest trends. Transpose this sentiment to twenty-first century Britain and the snobbery that can (occasionally!) surround the performance of grand opera - the result is a clever, brilliantly observed production, fizzing with wonderful melodies and a libretto that is laugh-out-loud funny. Performed by just four singers and a brilliant small orchestra, this is a must see for opera lovers and if you've never been to opera before, discover what all the fuss is about! Just two performances July 25th at 7pm and July 28th at 1.30pm. Picnics welcomed in West Green House Gardens after both performances.
