Your experience begins with a coach journey from Cardiff to Craig-y-Nos where you’ll enjoy a talk about Adelina Patti's life and times illustrated by music performed by a soprano and pianist from the David Seligman Opera School of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. The talk in the theatre will be given by Deborah Perkin of the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, who has studied the life and work of Adelina Patti. After this you’ll enjoy a guided tour around the gardens given by Tony Hibbert, who is the grandson of Adelina’s Head Gardener, Constantine Hibbert.
