Take Flight with Opera Holland Park for just £20

Flight - Opera Holland Park
Opera Holland Park is giving Jonathan Dove's opera Flight its first professional performance in London on 6 June 2015. Directed by Stephen Barlow and conducted by Brad Cohen, the production features a strong cast with James Laing as the Refugee, plus Jennifer France, Jeffrey Lloyd-Roberts, Ellie Laugharne, Lucy Schaufer, Kitty Whately, George von Bergen, Nicholas Garrett, Victoria Simmonds and John Savournin.

The opera was premiered by Glyndebourne on Tour in 1998, and performed at Glyndebourne in 1999 and revived by them in 2005, and it was also broadcast. But it only made its way to London when British Youth Opera performed it in 2008 (with a cast which included Andrew Radley, Nicky Spence and Duncan Rock, you can see the Act One finale on YouTube). You can read an interview with Jonathan Dove, providing more background to the piece, on the Opera Holland Park website.

Opera Holland Park is offering tickets for just £20 for the under 30's, simply phone the box office on 0300 999 1000
