Join the students of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire for their summer opera, Mansfield Park. Composer Jonathan Dove and librettist Alasdair Middleton’s opera is a witty and approachable interpretation of Jane Austen’s novel and the vocal lines combine imagination with enchanting virtuosity.

While Sir Thomas Bertram is away visiting his plantations in Antigua, his Mansfield Park Estate is thrown out of kilter by the arrival of Mary Crawford and her fickle brother, Henry. Hedonists escaping the social whirl of London, they crash into the countryside and corrupt the Bertram family.

At the centre of the chaotic household, Fanny Price, Austen’s own Cinderella, watches helplessly as relationships are tested and the social order is unsettled. Will the Bertram daughters escape untarnished by Henry Crawford’s wanton advances? Will Fanny’s beloved cousin Edmund see through Mary’s superficial social charm?
