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. The 2015 season, which starts on 2nd June, includes a revival of the 2012 production of Puccini's Il trittico (2, 5, 11, 13, 18, 20, 25, 27 June) and three new productions: Jonathan Dove's breakthrough work, Flight (6, 10, 12, 17, 19 June), Verdi's Aida (24, 26 June, 1, 4, 8, 10, 16, 19 , 21, 24 July) and Lakme Leo Delibes (9, 11, 15, 18, 23, 27, 29, 31 July). There follows a revival of the 2007 production of L'amore dei tre Re by Italo Montemezzi from 22nd July until 1st August as well as a welcome return of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (16th July until 1st August), the family opera so well received here for the past two years.
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.
