Wild Arts returns to the Chiltern Open Air Museum for the fourth year running with a brand new show for 2024.

Our Opera Evening is a love story built around your favourite opera classics, arranged into 75 minutes of musical heaven. All sung by the stars of tomorrow and played by a stunning string quintet. Follow four characters’ journeys through a kaleidoscope of arias, duets, and ensembles by Mozart, Rossini, Puccini, Verdi, Rodgers & Hammerstein and many many more.

‘An unalloyed delight to hear such musical perfection in one short show. And the string quintet presentation was so brilliant I now want to hear all my favourite operas performed that way. Anyone not having attended really missed something special. Do yourself a favour and buy a ticket next time the Wild Arts group are in town. I know I will.’ Courie Amado Juneau
