Buxton International Festival

The summer festivities of Derbyshire's idyllic spa town and grand opera house beckon once again.

Visits in recent seasons for productions of Handel's Tamerlano, Mozart's Lucio Silla and Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, in conjunction with our work in local schools, has earned us the title of Associate Orchestra at the Buxton International Festival. This season we pair the next phase of our flagship education project Crazy Composers with an instrumental programme of the great baroque masters.
