After dark

After Dark

West Green House Opera is unique in offering further delights once the opera is over. Step from our Green Theatre into a magical world where the gardens are spectacularly illuminated by our professional lighting designer, showing our trees, plants and shrubs in an entirely new way. Described by critic Warwick Thompson as ‘almost painfully beautiful’ audiences are encouraged to linger just a while after the end of each performance, maybe with a nightcap from the Lakefield Bar, to conclude a very special evening. The bar and gates to West Green close at 11.30pm.

Further theatrical magic was saved for after the show. Coming out of the theatre, the audience discovered that the walled potager, the hidden walks, the lake and fountains of West Green House garden had all been lit with fairy-lights, lanterns, and arc lights. It was almost painfully beautiful.
