Opera Holland Park The annual Holland Park Opera is a highlight of summer in London, when the temporary structure of Holland Park Theatre is erected in West London's Holland Park and the operatic arias soar over the tree tops. The magical atmosphere of these productions owe a lot to their surroundings but it's also a tribute to a remarkable opera company that has defied expectations and budgets to produce productions of the very highest standard. There are five new productions in the 2014 season which starts on 3rd June 2014: Puccini's 'La fanciulla del West' (3-21 June); Rossini's 'Il barbiere di Siviglia' (7-28 June); Britten's 'The Turn of the Screw' (1-12 July) staged for the first ever by Opera Holland Park; Bellini's 'Norma' (19 July-8 August), and Cilea's 'Adriana Lecouvreur'. 2014 also sees the revival of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (exact dates to be confirmed), the family opera staged here last year.

About Holland Park Theatre

Situated in the middle of Holland Park, every summer the temporary structure of the Holland Park Theatre is erected. The home of Holland Park Opera is one of London's more remarkable outdoor theatres. A tensed steel canopy, supported by soaring v-shaped poles but open at the sides to let in the summer air.
