In a few weeks time, the 2012 Season of London’s Opera Holland Park kicks off, one of the true highlights and foremost cultural summer events in the British capital. Come and enjoy the magic of opera. We’ll be there too!
Every year the event’s producers elevate an impressive theatre with canopy in the middle of the beautiful grounds of Holland Park in the heart of Kensington, creating a magical atmosphere just minutes away from the buzz and crowds of Central London.
Enjoying world class opera in a unique London setting with classic as well as more obscure and rare productions staged by leading international casts, the City of London Sinfonia Orchestra and the summer breeze during sunset is an unforgettable experience. No surprise that Opera Holland Park was named Best Opera Company 2010 by The Sunday Times.
That a passionate aria takes you miles away from the hustle and bustle of daily life is proven by this amusing flashmob performace at a London Tesco’s. Watch the cast and chorus of Opera Holland Park perform from Puccini’s La Rondine to the surprise of shoppers and staff alike:
OHP general manager, Michael Volpe, is keen to create a bigger cultural movement around the success of the opera season. This year will see, in addition to the opera offer, the literary festival ‘Words in the Park’, as well as the ‘Luna Cinema’ festival screening classic films on a big screen; there will be dance, cooking, eating and drinking and the fantastic: Fantastic Mr Fox!
At JUNA we are delighted to be here and look forward to accompanying your artistic picnic; with a ‘MANGO in the park’ whilst waiting for Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor; a ‘LULO Fizz’ with Prosecco to precede Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi; for the interval, a ‘MORA Lisa’ of Gin and Mora; and perhaps a ‘White Colombian’ of GUANABANA and rum for the cinema…a complete operatic experience…
