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.

‘My Father’s Choice’, ‘Sir John in Love’ and ‘Oh who would be unhappy me’ from The Poisoned Kiss
‘The Moon has raised her lamp above’ from The Lily of Killarney
