Opera Holland Park was always on the wish list but we had never gotten around to buying tickets. We are so glad we did. Cosi Fan Tutti was outstanding. The performers were amazing and the orchestra equally so. One little tip: it gets very cold...More

I am very much on the younger side of the audience. I like how accessible it is, as a whole. Pricing is good, and the standard very good. It is covered, so do not worry about the rain. We normally book picnic table, and bring...More

I have been going to Opera Holland Park for about 15 years, a few times each year. The standard is very good, not quite up to Glyndebourne, Garsington or Grange Park, but it often excels. It is a covered venue, but can be cold and...More

Saw an excellent production of Kat'a Kabanova in mid-July. It made Janacek's music come alive, with great staging, music, acoustics & easy-to-read surtitles. The facilities were clean. Tap water wasn't available at the bar and the bottled water was £2. It was lovely walking through...More

They have no food in the bar and the closest bar / shop is 20 minutes away. Overpriced opera performance considering the low musical level. Appalling acoustic.More

Opera Holland Park gets better every year. This year we saw "Zaza" and "Kat'a Kabanova". Both were sensational, could not fault a thing.

I was kindly taken to the latest production of DG and it is VERY good. The lead singers are phenomenal, especially Donna Elvera, who got a huge round of applause. It was an extremely "accessible" production, set on an ocean liner and it worked as...More

Glad you enjoyed the production. Our prices are an aberage of £50 and start at £18, with a top price (11%) of tickets at £77. 1200 tickets are free. I would suggest this is not 'sky high'. Our programme magazine covers the entire season..many people...More
