World's Smallest Opera

World's Smallest Opera (7min, NHK, Aug 2012)

Behind the scenes at the Iford Opera, a volunteer-run summer music festival at the immaculately-maintained former home near Bath of one of Britain's greatest garden designers. Full-scale professional operas are staged in an Italianate cloister with a capacity of 90 people, a hidden jewel on the 'country opera' circuit and hotbed for new talent.
