Wed 14 November 2018
Hosted in the spectacular Draper’s Hall, and raising money for our Inspire outreach and education programme, the OHP Gala brings together the worlds of opera, theatre, great food and wine in one event.
The evening features arias, duets, choruses and semi-staged scenes from some of the greatest operatic repertoire, but it’s far more than simply a procession of concert pieces. It is a creatively curated, atmospheric and immersive experience, framed by a beautiful atmosphere of conviviality; with great food too.
Every table will feature a special guest, and every ticket holder will be encouraged to mingle, share and enjoy the evening with OHP principals and the Opera Holland Park Chorus.
The ticket price includes a sparkling wine and canapé reception and a three course gourmet dinner. All proceeds will go towards supporting Opera Holland Park’s Inspire outreach and education programme.
This is an event that brings you closer to the visceral and emotional heart of opera in a way that is truly transporting. Nobody who attends will forget it.
Singers included (in order of appearance): Anna Patalong, Ross Ramgobin, Lauren Fagan, Stephen Aviss, Eve Daniell, Yvonne Howard, Anne Sophie Duprels, Alex Otterburn, Keel Watson, Amanda Roocroft and the Opera Holland Park Chorus.
Conducted by Sonia Ben-Santamaria
