Gala Performance of Opera at Buckfast Abbey

Gala Performance of Opera at Buckfast Abbey

We are delighted and excited to announce that there will be a special celebratory performance of this year’s opera, The Bartered Bride by Smetana on Sunday 17 July, 7pm.  This will be held outside in the grounds of Buckfast Abbey who have kindly agreed to host this special event.

The event will be free – please contact rwickenden@southdartmoor.devon.sch to book your ticket in advance.  This year’s opera performance was genuinely outstanding and is a fantastic example of student directed music at South Dartmoor.  We warmly invite you to find out for yourself - if you’ve never been to a SDCC Opera (or any opera) before, you will be in for an unexpected treat.  We also look forward to welcoming the already converted back to another fantastic occasion.

Please bring your own drinks refreshments and dress appropriately for the outdoor venue – there will be chairs provided. If the weather is against us, we have an indoor back up plan. Upon arrival, enter through the main gates from whence ushers will guide you to the venue – allow five minutes walking time for this.

Looking forward to what should prove to be an amazing evening.


Ralph Wickenden
