There are few opera festivals quite like Opera Holland Park. As a company we pride ourselves on artistic excellence and our connection to the community. In the summer we build a canopied theatre in the heart of the park, where we perform new productions of rarities and well known classics, support outstanding creative talent and provide free and subsidised tickets for the next generation of opera audiences. All year round our Inspire team visits care homes, schools and community centres to bring music and song to the those who might not otherwise get to enjoy it.

This year our summer season has been postponed but we can still bring opera to the community. During the lockdown period our Inspire team has been using digital technology to bring music and opera to the elderly, vulnerable and isolated. We are also hosting our first Virtual Open Day, where friends and families can join us to have fun, learn new skills and discover more dance, design, direction, conducting and the voice. Behind the scenes we are also supporting our creative teams and looking towards our return to the stage. 

In the current climate, we rely more than ever on the generosity of people like you to help us find new ways to reach our audience and to plan for the future. Any donation you can give, will go a long way to helping us continue our work through the lockdown and beyond.
