Please email your answer to by midday on Wednesday 24th June.

The Barber of Seville is a gloriously sunny comedy and the ultimate summer evening opera, perfectly suited to the stunning location of Chiswick House Grounds which were designed by the third Earl of Burlington (1694-1753), who drew inspiration from his ‘grand tours’ of Italy to create this elegant classical villa.

Diane Treganowan, this year’s Opera Chair explains, “The summer opera is one of the Friends’ key fundraising events, last year raising a record-breaking £17,000 which helps the Friends’ many projects that support the restoration and improvement of Chiswick House and its gardens. We are aiming to raise more than last year with many new opportunities for local businesses to support the event.”
