A Very Special Event – Classical Babies and Villa Pia Present Villa in Canto’s Don Pasquale

Oct 10, 2016 by

Imagine spending Sunday afternoon listening to opera, in an intimate venue, with full sets and costume accompanied by your little ones? Classical Babies, together with Villa Pia, will be hosting the Italian Opera Company, “Villa in Canto”, for their performance of scenes from Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale”.  This very special event will feature selected arias performed in full costume, in full set and in full character.


Villa In Canto is a brand new way to experience opera in smaller, intimate venues where the operas have been elegantly reworked to keep the integrity of the plots, but condensing the operas into intensive, emotional, hour and a quarter performances.  This skilful retelling keeps the grandeur of the story while focusing on communicating more directly with the audience, giving a richer experience of the characters and their emotions.


Classical Babies is London’s premier live family chamber-music concert brand with venues in Hampstead, Teddington, Epsom and Banstead.  The concerts are specifically for families with babies and small children; parents can enjoy music, coffee and the kids can play with soft toys on floor mats.


Villa Pia is a an all-inclusive family villa located in Lippiano Italy, near Perugia.  Villa Pia has swimming pools, countryside, indoor and outdoor play areas for kids, cots, baby monitors, and everything you could need for you and your family to enjoy a fabulous Italian holiday.  Chefs prepare all your meals, wine, beer, drinks are all included in your booking.  If you make a booking outside of school holidays, make sure to mention Classical Babies and you can receive £100 off your booking.


Don Pasquale will be performed in the ornate and decorative Normansfield Theatre in Teddington.  Tickets are just £12 per adult and children are free.  Tickets will be sold on the door, be sure to bring cash.  Sunday 16th October, 2pm.
