Divas to perform opera double fundraiser
Published 01/09/14



OPERA in the historic setting of an 18th century barn is coming to Fingest next month.

For the ninth year running, two evenings of opera will be held at the Manor Farm to raise funds for the Helen and Douglas House Hospice. On Saturday, September 6, The Tales of Hoffman, by Offenbach, will be performed by a cast from Diva Opera featuring Matthew Hargreaves as The Villain and Michael Bracegirdle as Hoffman.

The production of Don Giovanni, by Mozart, on Sunday, September 14, is being supported by Craig Rennie. Korean baritone Changan Lim takes the title role with Matthew Hargreaves as Leporello and Ana James as Donna Anna.

Both operas are staged in traditional costume and showcase singers who regularly appear at major opera houses.

Over the past nine years the event has raised 100,000 for the charity. Mary Boullin, community and events fund raising manager, Helen and Douglas House, said: “The money raised by this wonderful event makes such a difference to the young people and their families who visit Helen and Douglas House from Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas.

“We rely almost entirely on the generosity of people in our community to be able to run the two hospice houses. Without their ongoing support — anything from holding a tea party to running marathons and bigger events like this opera — we would not be able to provide the vital service to families coping with life shortening conditions.”
