Our 2019 Season includes works by Puccini and Verdi, a rarity by Cilea, and a double bill on the theme of secrets and lies, in five new productions.
“The ball scene with its bloody denouement, powered with tremendous verve by Matthew Kofi Waldren in the pit, is a triumphant meld of lighting, design, and choreography, with Gaitanou’s direction never putting a foot wrong.”
“Un ballo in maschera showcases Opera Holland Park at its best”
“Plowright’s Arvidson... is all frayed majesty and hauteur, while Alison Langer makes a fine Oscar, with her silvery tone and precise coloratura. Matthew Kofi Waldren, meanwhile, conducts with passion and sensitivity. The choral singing is outstanding.”
