HGO brings back live opera performances to London
For Mark Berry’s review click here
HGO (formerly Hampstead Garden Opera) is dedicated to supporting singers at the start of their careers – they will lead the return of live opera to London. HGO’s staged open-air production with orchestra of Gustav Holst’s one-act Sāvitri will play at Lauderdale House, Highgate, on 13-22 August. The opera tells a tale based on the ancient Māhabhārata, of life, death, illusion and hope, powerfully resonant with our times.
There will be two staged open-air performances nightly of this half-hour opera in the portico of Lauderdale House, at 18.30 and 20.00 on 13, 15, 20 and 22 August, with the audience socially distanced on the lawn. For details and tickets click here.
The production is staged by Julia Mintzer, and conducted by Thomas Payne. Details of the HGO cast, orchestra and chorus can be seen on our website click here.
