Diva Opera returns to Henley-on-Thames this September in aid of charity

Couples can enjoy the Diva Opera returning to Henley-on-Thames this September Britain's foremost chamber opera group is returning to Henley-on-Thames this September for two performances in aid of children's charities. Over the past 26 years, Diva Opera has produced more than 50 different operas and over 2000 performances in festivals, theatres and charities throughout Great Britain, Europe, Japan, and South Africa. The group will be presenting Puccini's Tosca on the 17th of September and Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte on the 24th of September in the idyllic surroundings of The Great Barn at Manor Farm, Fingest, near Henley-on-Thames.

Diva Opera's casts include singers who work at major opera houses, and the operas are performed in stunning period costumes. There are subtitles for both operas and opera-goers will be able to enjoy a picnic in a specially erected marquee during the extended interval

.The two charities chosen to benefit from the performances are Action Medical Research for Children and Child Bereavement UK. Action Medical Research for Children is a leading UK-wide charity which funds vital medical research. In the past 70 years, their research has helped to beat polio in the UK, fight meningitis, prevent stillbirths and develop antenatal ultrasound scanning in pregnancy. Child Bereavement UK supports children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. 

Organiser Sylvia Crowther said: "We're so pleased to be hosting Diva Opera again this year. The performances are a wonderful opportunity to enjoy first-class opera while supporting two very worthy causes."

Tickets cost £90 and £105 and include a reserved seat in the Great Barn and a picnic table for the interval.
