Here, below, you can see the stage set of Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park, the Opera, produced by Heritage Opera, courtesy of their Twitter Feed.


Serena Wagner as Fanny Price was being filmed at Townley Hall, Burnley by Amanda Vickery’s production company for her forthcoming documentary for the BBC on Jane Austen which will air, most probalby, in December this year.

You can see the first page of chapter one of the first edition of Mansfield Park printed on the backcloth, the plain white chairs upholstered with the same fabric, and poor Miss Price in unbearable dispair.
