Summer of Music at Boughton House

Boughton House is gearing up for a summer
of celebrations in perfect harmony with
one another. As well as its new collaborative
exhibition A Passion for Opera: The Duchess
and the Georgian Stage, the Estate will host
a performance from leading period ensemble
Opera Prelude and three outdoor musical
cinema screenings over the summer.

The exhibition will be previewed at an exclusive
event in conjunction with Oundle International
Festival on Saturday 6th July. Hosted by the
Duke of Buccleuch, this black tie event will
feature a champagne reception, as well as a
guided tour of the House and exhibition, before
a concert from Opera Prelude, with an ensemble
of leading period instrument specialists. Tickets
£50 are on sale now at
uk. From 2pm a separate symposium, exploring
the musical life of Elizabeth and her family and
their relationship with London’s opera scene, will
reveal some extraordinary archival discoveries.
Tickets for this are £10, with a full day package
priced at £55.

The Estate will also be screening
Bradley Cooper’s A Star is Born,
featuring Lady Gaga on Friday
9th August as well as the awardwinning

Rhapsody starring Rami Malek on
Friday 20th September (the August screening of
