    OPERA IN THE HOUSE for Heritage venues

    The extensive experience which Candlelight Opera has gained from organising performances inside

    historic houses for organisations such as English Heritage and The National Trust, has ensured that the

    staging and technical specifications required to mount a fully staged production are sensitive to the

    conservation issues inherent in any historic venue. Candlelight Opera can provide their own specialised

    staging and lighting which complies to the restrictions imposed by working in sensitive environments.

    So as to limit disruption to the normal operations of the venue, there is minimal set-up required

    for each production.

    Open air & Festival performances

    Candlelight Opera can assist you with your festival or musical promotion by providing a beautifully

    costumed gala performance with orchestral accompaniment, ideally suited to open air stages,

    theatres and concert halls.
