The Opera Holland Park Chorus will make its debut at the Aldeburgh Festival on 20 June 2019 in Stravinsky’s Hogarthian fable, The Rake’s Progress. Conducted by Barbara Hannigan, the OHP Chorus joins the Ludwig Orchestra and a cast of singers from Hannigan’s Equilibrium Young Artists scheme.
On 13 June, at Opera Holland Park's Hope For Grenfell Memorial Gala, a choir of 200 children and adults from the community, alongside our own chorus, performed ‘Help Me Believe’ – a new piece commissioned by OHP with words and music by Will Todd and Gareth Malone. Here you can watch that emotional performance.
Director Karolina Sofulak and designer George Leigh, joint first prize winners of the tenth European Opera prize, will lead the creative team for Manon Lescaut, the first production of Opera Holland Park’s 2019 Season.
Founded in 1996, Opera Holland Park is an opera company with a unique voice. Based in Kensington, we present a summer opera festival of fully staged productions in one of the most beautiful parks in the Capital.
