Opera Holland Park - Lakme

This sumptuous jewel of an opera is best known for the ‘Flower Duet’, used for many years by British Airways for its advertisement.  Lakmé actually amounts to a great deal more. It is beautifully balanced from a musical point of view, has real heartbreak at its centre and belongs in the stable of opera that absorbed influences from the orient and developed this exoticism into high Victorian art. Ticket from £49.5.  To book, please click here.

For pre-opera picnic, meet in the nice garden (with flower beds and benches) next to the opera Marquee from 6pm.  Please bring some picnic for yourself and some to share if you wish.  If it is wet, we'll meet under the covered area adjacent to the cafe next to the opera Marquee.  Let's hope it will be sunny.  (The auditorium is under a Marquee, so you will be dry rain or shine.)
