Each year in August, St Cuthberts Church in Oborne is transformed into a theatre for a weekend of sublime music.  Whilst everything ‘back of house’ is carried out by an enthusiastic crew of villagers, the cast are all international soloists in their own right. 

Girlings is delighted once again to be a supporter of this wonderful local event.​

Opera in Oborne aims to make opera accessible to all and encourages first time opera-goers.  Operas are cleverly abridged by the Director, Stephen Anthony Brown and usually last 2 hours including the interval.  Televisions are used to show the audience plot prompts throughout the performances.​
