Ford & Etal Estates is hosting two open-air opera performances this summer in the spectacular setting of Ford Castle courtyard. Tonight Opera Brava, Britain’s leading outdoor touring opera company, will present Tosca by Giacomo Puccini.


Tosca is a must see tragic opera for both newcomers and aficionados. The magnificent Puccini score  has breathtakingly beautiful arias and rousing musical moments. This new production by Opera Brava is set in Rome in the 1940’s and brings to light all of the tragedies that happen in relationships during a world of conflict. It is sung in English and the role of Tosca is performed by the Polish/Scottish soprano Natasha Day. Expect world class singing from Britain’s outstanding touring opera company.

Bring rugs, and your own chairs for comfort. we will have porters to help you carry your things. When you order your ticket you can also purchase a delicious picnic box to collect on arrival, but if you prefer you can bring your own. There is no bar so you will need to bring your own drinks for the evening. Gates open at 5.30pm so you can relax and enjoy this incredible setting and feel the atmosphere build in the run up to this very special open-air performance which begins at 7:30pm.
