Beautiful music, star-crossed lovers and a touch of tragedy are all combined in one of the most popular operas, and on Friday, August 10, there will be a chance to enjoy it in a garden setting.

Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème always enthrals an audience wherever it is performed, with its emotionally-charged story and

its familiar music.

This is the 10th year that the Garden Opera Company has performed in the lovely gardens of Mannington Hall by kind permission of Lord and Lady Walpole.

The production is directed by Martin Lloyd-Evans, with costumes designed by Dulcie Best and a l940s Parisian set designed by Neil Irish.

The opera brings into focus the fragility of young hearts entangled in a struggle for life and love amidst the harsh realities of bohemian life.
