Dance and deliciousness

World-class ballet, cocktails and fine dining in a stunning walled garden – could there be a more blissful outing for a summer’s evening?

From 27-30 July, present and future stars of The Paris Opera Ballet will perform in a spectacular production at Hatch House in Wiltshire. The Covent Garden Dance Company will create their annual 430-seat dinner theatre within the house’s 17th-century walled garden. But the vagaries of the British weather won’t spoil the magic: stage and seating are sheltered by a bespoke roof. The world-famous Étoiles – Valentine Colasante, Myriam Ould-Braham and Guillaume Diop – will be joined by a star-studded line up, including the likes of Royal Ballet superstars Francesca Hayward and Cesar Corrales.

After Paris-inspired cocktails on arrival, you will be served a gourmet dinner hamper a la table with wine pairings. The programme, ranging from classical to contemporary, will feature twelve pieces including Nureyev’s Romeo and Juliet – a delectable buffet of timeless favourites and new discoveries.

This is a unique and unmissable experience, taking ballet out of the theatre and into a magical and intimate setting. All-inclusive tickets start at £185 and can be booked at
