Opera me up buttercup

A glorious summer of leafy opera descends on West London with the 2009 Holland Park Opera Season. Classics such as Puccini’s La Bohème and Humperdinck’s playful Hänsel und Gretel play to London’s great and the good from June to August.
The theatre opens early for evening picnics and all evening performances are surtitled (not subtitled- words are flashed above the performance so the audience can follow the action) and finish between 10pm and 10.30pm. Prices range from £10 to £54. Fly to Heathrow, Gatwick or Stansted for a weekend break and take in a night at the opera in one of London’s most beautiful parks- a refreshing alternative to the bustle of a West End show.
