We will open with two of the great classics of the repertoire; Verdi’s Rigoletto and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin.
The third production will be Lehár’s sparkling operetta, The Merry Widow, sung in English.
The season will close with a double bill of Puccini’s Le Villi and Delius’s Margot la Rouge.
Puccini’s fantasy of lost love and supernatural revenge, Le Villi, has been on OHP’s planning board for some time and the performance will mark the opera’s first major London staging. Our new production of Margot la Rouge, Delius’s only verismo opera, is an equally exciting prospect, and will be generously supported by the Delius Trust.
