about this event


Join Members of English National Opera for a spectacular operatic journey from the gilded opera houses of Italy to the Russian steppes, via the London of George Frederick Handel. Other musical morsels will be provided by Messrs Gilbert and Sullivan and the greats of the musical theatre world. There may be humour. They may even be props! We are hugely looking forward to this, our third visit to Cranleigh.

This is a fundraising event in support of Cranleigh Arts Centre (Registered charity no. 284186) and Smart Cranleigh (www.smartcranleigh.org).
