Country opera changes its dress codemain
Wasfi Kani, head of the relocated Grange Park Opera which reopens in Surrey next summer, doesn’t expect everyone to turn up in formal wear.
The new dress code reads: ‘Guests wear something stylish. Most of the audience wears black tie/ long or short dress, but don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. We encourage creativity.’
What she means, she tells the Telegraph, is: ‘People can wear whatever they like. A nice Italian suit is a better piece of clothing than a tatty old dinner jacket. We don’t all have to have the same life.’
Trainers will be welcomed, provided they are very expensive.
