Tickets for the last 2 performances of The Marriage of Figaro are available here - Booking. After our opening night at Kirklinton Hall we received this generous and insightful note below.
"Last night's performance of "The Marriage of Figaro" at Kirklinton Hall was simply magnificent. The penultimate aria "Contessa perdono!", the Contessa's "Più docile sono" reply and the final ten-voice "Ah! tutti contenti" was the most exquisite musical experience I have ever known. I'm still feeling emotional about it this morning.
The singing, the acting, the sheer physicality of your performances - every moment was magically enhanced by the closeness and intimacy of the setting. As an ensemble, what I noticed was your infectious sense of enjoyment. All of you genuinely seemed to delight in performing together. The musical accompaniment heightened the emotion of the singing without ever being overriding.
I am can say in all honesty that your performance was a life-changing moment for me and for that, you all have everlasting gratitude. Thank you."
