Thaxted Festival’s new Artistic Director previews our 2018 season.
Welcome to Thaxted Festival 2018 season. Our Festival goes from strength to strength, and this will be my first opportunity as Artistic Director to satisfy and excite our devoted and truly supportive music lovers.
A personal review by Artistic Director, Gareth Stainer
The ending of our 2017 Thaxted Festival in mid-July marks the completion of twenty years in my role as Artistic Director of the Festival, and I am pleased to reflect on the success of another ambitious and varied season.
Love opera? Like opera but can’t get to it easily? Might like it but not never been to a live performance? Wondering what all the fuss about? Well, Pop-up Opera is coming to us here in Thaxted on Sunday 9 July at 7.30, and it just might be the answer if you feel any of these ways about opera!
