CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

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


Zanetto is a sweetly moving, gorgeously scored miniature to open our double bill. It is a long way from the gritty world of Cavalleria rusticana, Mascagni's storming debut in opera; this was a composer who ranged happily across many genres in his musical journey, and Zanetto is another curiosity in his canon. It tells of an encounter between a beautiful courtesan and a young wandering minstrel, which leads to love, sacrifice and pain. The music is gentle and resonant, and there are just two singers.
Music Pietro Mascagni
Lyrics Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti
Lyrics Guido Menasci (Guido Menasci (after an Italian translation by Emilio Paga of Francois Coppee's play Le Passant)
