Presented by Petroc Trelawny, Christmas with Opera Holland Park is a virtual festive concert with an OHP twist.
This film is ‘pay what you feel’ (£5 suggested donation). If you would like to support Opera Holland Park into 2021 and beyond, please consider donating at the following link: www.operahollandpark.com/donate
Principal singers Ross Ramgobin, Elizabeth Karani, Julien Van Mellaerts, Hannah Pedley and Robert Murray perform popular seasonal songs with accompaniment by pianist Stuart Wild, alongside lieder and chansons in the beautiful surroundings of our next door neighbour, Leighton House. Meanwhile the Opera Holland Park Chorus are gathered together on our normal theatre site at Holland House to sing all your favourite traditional carols.
We’re also joined by special guests actor Philip Jackson and author Kathy Lette for atmospheric readings and a boozy Christmas cake recipe. As a final treat to speed your Christmas on its way, Chief Executive and Director of Opera James Clutton shares his secret festive cocktail recipe.
The film will be available to watch for free on this page, on YouTube, and on our Facebook channel, from 7pm on Thursday 17 December. Don’t forget to let us know what you think #OHPChristmas.
