Maldon Festival: Open-Air Opera double-bill and picnic, sponsored by Plume Academy

St Mary's Church grounds


UNTIL Saturday 25th June

Artistic Director Colin Baldy with Plume Academy's Executive Principal, Carl Wakefield

The Maldon Festival's Artistic Director, Colin Baldy, is delighted to announce Plume Academy will sponsor a key event this Saturday.

Executive Principal, Carl Wakefield, will host an open-air opera double bill and picnic this Saturday, at 7.30 pm.

Une éducation manquée (An Incomplete Education) and Cox and Box, will be performed by a local company, Handmade Opera. Tickets start from £22 and can purchased via the website.

Mr Wakefield said: "We are delighted to be associated with this cultural event for the town."

The open-air opera was a new addition to the 2020 Festival and is back by popular demand. Held in St Mary's churchyard with the Blackwater Estuary providing a spectacular backdrop, this is the perfect opera for a summer's evening. It offers the classic combination of wonderful music and a ditsy story of an innocent young couple investigating the dynamics of relationships, facilitated by no-less innocent but more elderly advisors.

Behind the scenes, several Plume Academy students will have a unique opportunity to watch, assist and observe the build-up to the final performances on the evening.
