Scope and content

Each year, Bampton Classical Opera offers a real treat for people to enjoy opera in the grounds of The Deanery. People take chairs, a picnic and a blanket, sit at tables and quite simply have a treat at a fraction of the price you'd have to pay in London. The opera has such a wonderful record, people come especially from abroad to experience it here. Should it be wet, the opera would take place in St Mary's. In 2017 Mozart's great revival was championed again with La Scuola de' gelosi (The School of Jealousy) It premiered in Venice in 1778. It is a comedy of marital jealousy, infidelity and deception. While rehearsals took place in the grounds of the Deanery, the performance had to be in St Mary's because the heavens opened as can be seen in one of these pictures. During rehearsals in the church, a coach full of Indian tourists came on the Downton Abbey trail and that sat to enjoy the moment.
