This year, Garsington Opera moved into their new opera pavilion at Wormsley.



The following photographs by Mike Hoban are from Rossini's Il Turco in Italia, one of their three productions, the others being Vivaldi's La verità in cimento  and Mozart's The Magic Flute.  The production was definitely a hit for George Hall in The Guardian , Giles Woodforde in The Oxford Times and Paul Levy in The Wall Street Journal.
