West Green House Opera

The West Green House Opera Season takes place at the end of July each year, when the gardens are incredibly beautiful, making it the most perfect setting for a small, friendly Opera festival.

West Green House is a quintessentially English manor house and garden, but with a twist. The gardens intriguingly combine neo-classical style with flamboyant contemporary design. The Opera, fielding a full orchestra, offers audiences a blissful combination of music, food, drink and elegance, set in the stunning gardens. In 2000, the first ever Opera Season was created by the inspirational opera professional and garden designer Marylyn Abbott, former marketing and tourism manager of Sydney Opera House.

As each opera evening concludes, West Green House becomes a unique experience as the Lake Field, water gardens and follies are lit to create a “fête champêtre”, a performance in its own right, creating an unsurpassed garden spectacle.

West Green House, The Opera Garden is situated in this unspoilt corner of Hampshire and close to the attractive village of Hartley Wintney, just 45 minutes by car or coach from London and well positioned between the M3 and M4 and close to the train station of Winchfield.

A contender for the most beautiful summer opera venue in the country just got more beautiful!”
