Description: The husband of operatic soprano Audrey Mildmay created an opera house so that she could perform. A former science master at Eton, John Christie converted the family Tudor country house in 1934 and very quickly the performances that were held there won critical acclaim. The original opera house has since been rebuilt and now seats 1150 people.
