Buxton Festival – England

Buxton Opera house är platsen för den årliga Buxton Festival sedan 1979. 2015 anordnas festivalen mellan 10-25 juli.

History

This spark was to lead to the regeneration of the Opera House, following a campaign headed by local residents Margaret Millican and Michael Williams.

In 1979, the first Buxton Festival was staged. The Festival continues to go from strength to strength, refreshing the repertoire with rarely performed operas by popular composers, and with a celebrated programme of music recitals and literary talks.
