We are delighted to announce details from the Opera Series and programme highlights for Buxton International Festival 2021. A full festival will go ahead between 8th and 25th July in our beautiful spa town, in the heart of the stunning Peak District.
This year’s programme includes:
And another exciting announcement to come soon…
In addition, the Festival is offering a musical for the first time, a co-production with Buxton Opera House of Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, starring Janie Dee, directed by Paul Kerryson and conducted by Wyn Davies.
The music and book series programmes are equally as exciting with a diverse range of artists and speakers visiting Buxton over the festival period:
The Festival’s exceptional music series features some of the UK’s finest artists, including the violinist, Jennifer Pike, who will be 2021’s artist-in-residence. Further highlights include concerts from Dame Sarah Connolly, Sir John Tomlinson, The English Concert, the Fitzwilliam String Quartet and Natalie Clein.
The Festival’s books programme boasts some of the most exciting new publications of 2021. It offers events of cultural escapism with favourite “voices” from radio and television, and as ever, does not shy away from controversial subjects. Highlights include events on land reform, the leadership style of our British Prime Ministers, slave trade reparations, and the future of Brexit Britain.
The full Festival programme will be landing on your doormats and arriving in your inboxes at the beginning of April. Priority booking will open on 6 April.
