CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

What is currently on at Opera Holland Park - Open Air Theatre (V203)

La Gioconda

The Ballad Singer, after the Victor Hugo play "Angelo, Tyrant of Padua". First performed 8/4/1876 though modified soon after. Four acts (The Lion's Mouth, The Rosary, The House of Gold and The Orfano Canal). Set in Venice in the 17th Century. La Gioconda's moth is accused of witchcraft but rescued by Enzo, whom she loves but who is in love with Laura, the wife of Alvise. Alvise tells his wife to take poison, but she is saved by La Gioconda but Enzo believes she is dead and is arrested. To save Enzo, la Gioconda agrees to yield to Barnaba, who loves her, but at the last minute she kills herself - just as he admits to strangling her mother to death.
Music Amilcare Ponchielli
Lyrics Arrigo Boito
