A Celebration of British Opera with Opera Holland Park

A Celebration of British Opera was performed by members of Opera Holland Park in the intimate surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room. The programme, listed below, consisted of selected works by British composers, many of which I was unfamiliar with.

I found myself really enjoying the evening, and it really helped me broaden my opera knowledge.
