Nevill Holt Opera Theatre

Sitting on the crest of a hill overlooking the Welland Valley, this Grade I listed 15th century house supports a vibrant summer opera festival within a fine former stable.

Woldon prepared concept designs for the replacement of the existing temporary structure with a permanent theatre within the stable’s courtyard.

Proposals for a 400-seater auditorium were developed, drawing inspiration from the intimate nature of regency theatres such as The Theatre Royals in Richmond and Bury St Edmunds.

The design involves roofing the courtyard with a lightweight steel and glass structure that spans discreetly below the ridges of the existing stable blocks. While the existing tent theatre masks the former stable courtyard, our proposal exposes the historic features of the stable elevations and celebrates them as part of a unique opera experience.
