Free opera for under 18s
Opera Holland Park is giving away 1,000 free tickets for those aged 7-18.
The performances will take place in a temporary pavilion. The offer is part of the Inspire Project, which has been introducing young people to opera since 2005.
General manager Michael Volpe said: ‘Opera has all kinds of reputations to live up to and some of them do little to encourage people to give it a try. We hope to change that with the help of our Free Ticket Scheme for young people. It is possible for everyone of all ages to enjoy what is generally considered the most spectacular and complete theatrical experience. Laughter, tears, heartbreak, tragedy, drama and, of course, some of the most beautiful music ever written – opera has it all.’
The 2015 season includes Puccini’s Il Trittico, Verdi’s Aida and Will Todd’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Tickets can be booked from 27th April.
