Fresh from the Metropolitan Opera, New York and the Vienna Staatsoper, leading British tenor David Butt Philip returns to Opera Holland Park to make his role debut as Canio in Pagliacci, directed by Martin Lloyd-Evans and conducted by Francesco Cilluffo, the creative team behind our sensational 2022 production of Le Villi.

Celebrated for Canio’s signature aria, ‘Vesti la giubba’, Pagliacci was purported to be based on true crime, while Il segreto di Susanna anticipates the screwball comedies of 1930s Hollywood, with music of delicious wit and charm.
