Georgian Pleasures

May 16, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Banner Capture

Enjoy music from the Georgian period while you explore one of Bath’s hidden gems: the lovely Capability Brown landscape garden at Newton Park. Bath Spa University presents the Vauxhall Players in an outdoor gala concert of music from composers with Bath connections, as well as celebrated visitors such as Arne and Haydn. There’ll also be a rare performance of Lampe’s The Dragon of Wantley — an uproarious tale of scarlet women, country bumpkins and a less-than-terrifying dragon. Hear for yourself why it became the second most popular English opera of the 18th century! Complete with strolling players and dramatic vignettes, all performed in beautiful period costume.

This is a promenade event. Audiences are welcome to bring folding chairs and rugs. The event will go ahead in wet weather using alternative venues at Newton Park.

Produced by Bath Spa University
