Italian Opera Evening


Sunday 9 September 2018, 19:30

As Lancaster celebrates all things Italian with its first Festa Italia, join us at Lancaster Castle for a concert of fabulous Opera

In the beautiful Shire Hall, North West opera singers present a programme of unforgettable melodies all from operas written in Italian.

Expect love and hate, joy and despair in well-loved arias, duets and ensembles from Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, Verdi’s La Traviata, Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte and more.

Ideal for keen opera lovers or uncertain opera novices, each item will be introduced and set in context so no prior knowledge (or fluent Italian!) is necessary.

Tickets: £7.50 Adults, £6 Concessions.

To book call 01524 64998 or visit the on-site shop and ticket office.

Tickets on sale from Monday 6 August 2018.


Entry to this event will be via the Shire Hall entrance at the rear of the castle (opposite the Priory Church).

Access is limited, and people with limited mobility are advised to contact the castle prior to booking.
