A festive concert staging will include extracts from fairy-tale opera favourites including Rossini’s La Cenerentola and Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, as well as from Royal Opera repertory classics including Puccini’s La bohème and Mozart's The Magic Flute and Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas to bring out the full Christmas spirit.
Conducted by Mark Wigglesworth, soloists Sophie Bevan, Hanna Hipp, Jeremy White, Ross Ramgobin and Roderick Williams perform, as well as Gyula Nagy, Germán E. Alcántara and Dominic Sedgwick, with the combined forces of the Royal Opera Chorus, Jette Parker Young Artists and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in this wonderful Yuletide celebration.
Live performance is a shared experience, and our audiences are at the heart of what we do on our stages, backstage, online, in cinemas and in our communities. This year’s global pandemic has affected all arts organisations across the world. We have lost £3 in every £5 of our income, and any Government loan will take us only part of the way. We need your help to bring artists back to our stages. Please consider making a donation to the Royal Opera House Recovery Campaign.
