Wild Arts presents an evening of opera highlights in the gardens at Boconnoc.


A love story built around your favourite opera classics, arranged into 75 minutes of musical heaven. All sung by the stars of tomorrow and played by a stunning string quintet. 

You are welcome to arrive from 5pm to enjoy the amazing views and set up your picnic. Please note, we do not permit alcohol being brought to site, however, Boconnoc Bar will be offering non-alcoholic and alcoholic refreshments.

The performance will start around 6pm and you’ll be able to continue your picnic afterwards, in the last rays of the setting sun.

In the event of wet weather, this event will be moved indoors. 



Wild Arts is a new company founded by Orlando Jopling which takes world-class opera to beautiful venues across the UK. More information on wildarts.org.uk

Wild Arts makes great music fresh and enjoyable, performed in intimate venues, for everyone. In 2022 we performed in over 30 venues.

Environmentally sustainable performing and touring, and top quality, lie at the heart of Wild Arts.

We take risks, playing opera and symphonic repertoire as chamber music, collaboratively, and in unusual locations. We mix incredibly talented young musicians with the expertise of musicians who have performed on the great world stages.

The long term dream of Wild Arts is a truly sustainable opera house and performance space, set in a re-wilded and bio-diverse environment, built from sustainable materials, with regenerative, carbon positive operation.


Let me tell you that Wild Arts’ opera evenings are of a breathtakingly high, ROH-level musical standard – a gorgeous quintet of musicians and a most cunning choice of excerpts, mischievously well acted. I’d follow them anywhere. Libby Purves


A fine young cast excel, with engaging energy and superb singing … a knowing, cheeky sense of humour, while never detracting from Mozart’s delectable score. An affordable and accessible production, attracting those who might be new to opera.The Guardian on our 2022 production of Così fan tutte.
