Press release: OHP announces the retirement of General Director, Michael Volpe
13 Jan 2020
After 31 years at Opera Holland Park, Michael Volpe, General Director, has decided to take early retirement from his role with the company. This will take effect from 30 September 2020, after the 2020 Season and at the end of the 2019/2020 financial year.
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.
Opera Holland Park is aware of the #BlackOutTuesday movement among parts of the music industry that began to gather pace yesterday. We are individually and as a company committed to equality and we understand the desire of the music industry to make a strong statement about this issue. We will therefore now broadcast Un ballo in maschera on Wednesday 3 June at 7.30pm instead of this evening.
