Oundle International Festival in association with Boughton House presents

An exclusive black tie event, hosted by the Duke of Buccleuch, in the magnificent surroundings of Boughton House.

Guided visits to the house and a pre-opening preview of the summer exhibition are followed by a champagne and canapés before the concert by the rising stars of Opera Prelude and an ensemble of leading period instrument specialists. The performance is built around Domenico Corri’s extraordinary 1810 bel canto singing manual dedicated to Elizabeth, Duchess of Buccleuch, and offers a rare opportunity to discover hidden treasures of eighteenth-century Italian opera unearthed from the Montagu Music collection alongside familiar favourites by Mozart and Rossini.

From 2pm a separate symposium explores the musical life of Elizabeth and her family within the context of London’s opera scene, which will reveal some extraordinary archival discoveries.
