What to expect at the opera
Investec Opera Holland Park is one of the UK’s most successful non-state opera companies. Even if you’re not familiar with opera, the warm atmosphere and affordable pricing make it fun and accessible.
 
Each opera is sung in the original language, but subtitling is projected above the stage so that you can follow the story. There are around six different operas presented every season and nearly 50 performances. Many of the operas are famous classics, but the company also has a reputation for selecting daring, innovative works.

In 2017, the Investec Opera Holland Park programme included:

La Rondine

100 years on from the premiere in Monte Carlo, this was the first time this Giacomo Puccini production was performed at Opera Holland Park.

Don Giovanni

In another new production, Mozart's Don Giovanni tells the tale of the legend of Don Juan, blending comedy and melodrama in its two acts.

Kát’a Kabanová

The only revival in the 2017 season was Leoš Janáček's Kát’a Kabanová. A captivating drama, this romantic tragedy lends itself to many different interpretations.

Zazà

The score of Zazà borrows a great deal from Ruggero Leoncavello's time spent in French music halls as an early composer, in another new production.
