  1. La Cenerentola, 'Cinderella' - Gioachino Rossini

Longhope Opera is a festival held on the Longhope Estate in Newton Valence, Hampshire. Having impressed thousands of guests since 2019, Scherzo Ensemble return with their fourth production. This summer, we warmly invite you to a performance of Rossini's comedy La Cenerentola on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July 2023.

Our doors open two hours before the show, allowing guests plenty of time to enjoy refreshments, take walks around the grounds, and listen to the various live chamber music performances on offer. A complimentary drinks reception follows, courtesy of Hogmoor Distillery, where guests can mingle and soak up the festivities before taking their seats in the auditorium.

After the first act, we will take a long dining interval of 90-minutes, during which time we invite you to enjoy one of our unreserved or reserved dining experiences.

Unreserved dining:Bring your own hamper and find a spot on our grassy lawns to enjoy it al fresco. If you would prefer to sit at a table, all are welcome to sit at our communal trestle tables in our Dining Marquee on the Old Tennis Court - perfect for keeping you cool on a hot day and dry on a wet day. Reserved dining: For a surcharge, you can reserve a decorated round table in our Dining Marquee on the Old Tennis Court. These are situated in a prime location with the best views of the South Downs and accommodate parties of 6, 8 and 10 people. (Includes a tablecloth, water, and flowers).Diners with reservations are welcome to enjoy their own hampers, or to order a 3 course meal served by waiting staff, provided by Martha Hollis Caterers.
