OPERA Brava returns to Rodmarton Manor for a weekend of opera as you have never seen it before.

A leading professional outdoor touring opera company, Opera Brava returns to the Cotswolds for the 12th successive year with performances of La Traviata on July 5 and The Marriage of Figaro on July 6.

Owners John and Sarah Biddulph are kindly opening their idyllic private grounds for the opera and picnics under the stars.
