Thursday 13th December : Gilbert and Sullivan’s  “Patience”


2018  SEP. TO DEC..

Opera Nights are informal and free of charge. The bar will be open at 7.00pm,  there is a short introduction to the work  and the Opera commences at 7.30pm with an interval, when the bar will again be open. Where the operas are given in the original language there are subtitles in English.

Thursday 27th September:  Puccini’s “Tosca” This acclaimed  Royal Opera production with Bryn Terfel, Jonas Kaufmann and Angela Gheorghiu conducted by Antonio Pappano was postponed from last March because of the snow!

Thursday 1st November : Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore” This is of a delightful live performance in 2005 from the Vienna State Opera starring the young, vivacious Anna Netrebko, Rolando Villazon and Leo Nucci.


Thursday 29th November : Verdi’s  “Don Carlos”. Another Royal Opera production, described by The Financial Times as “one of The Royal Opera’s finest achievements” with Ileana Cotrubas, Luis Lima, and Robert Lloyd.

Thursday 13th December : Gilbert and Sullivan’s  “Patience”.  Filmed at Sidney Opera House, this is, by far, the best available production of this delightful opera. What better way to start the festive season!
