On 7 August, we look forward to presenting an evening of light music and operetta. Last seen at Opera Holland Park conducting Wolf-Ferrari’s romantic comedy, Il segreto di Susanna, John Andrews has devised a journey through some of the most delicious comic operas from the Viennese, Parisian and London stages. Birdcatchers, gendarmes, lovers and policemen dance in and out of music by Mozart, Offenbach, Sullivan, Strauss and Lehár. Featuring Yvonne Howard, John Savournin, Fflur Wyn, Robert Murray and Alison Langer, with an ensemble of strings, woodwind and percussion from City of London Sinfonia, the programme is the perfect apéritif for a summer’s evening at Holland Park.

Following our homecoming concert on 25 July and to mark what would have been the closing night of our summer season, we are delighted to announce a further evening of great operatic arias on 8 August. This performance will feature singers including Natalya Romaniw, Jennifer France, Alison Langer, Nardus Williams, Ross Ramgobin, Anush Hovhannisyan, Aigul Akhmetshina, Samuel Sakker, Anna Patalong, Emma Stannard and Grant Doyle. Matthew Kofi Waldren returns to conduct an ensemble drawn from our resident orchestra, City of London Sinfonia. For more information and to find out how to book, click here.

In accordance with the current guidelines on social distancing and outdoor performances, our seating capacity is strictly limited to 200. We will continue to offer priority booking for both events to our Members and Supporters. However, given our charitable objective to make opera accessible to all, we are pleased to be holding 50 tickets for public sale to enable some of the wider OHP community to attend. These will go on sale Wednesday 29 July at 1pm. Of course, Members and Supporters that were unable to purchase tickets during priority booking can also book during this time when these tickets are released. We would like to thank our Members, Supporters and wider audience for their continued support and understanding as we try to improve accessibility for these limited capacity events. There will also be waiting lists available for both performances.
