'The Skating Rink', Opera

Members of The Anglo Chilean Society had a fantastic day at Garsington Opera on Tuesday 10th July.

A party of 23 Members and guests met in the beautiful surroundings of the Garsington Opera, at Wormsley, to enjoy The Skating Rink, a new Opera by David Sawer (music) and Rory Mullarkey (libretto) based on the eponymous novel by Chilean writer, Roberto Bolaño.

Set in a small seaside town on the Spanish Costa Brava, this is a tale of three tangled love stories set around a campsite and a crumbling palace as a young woman tries to regain her place on the Olympic Skating Team. Jealousy, corruption and blackmail lead to a murder mystery that unravels in a mesmerising final coda in this excellent new production.
