Our new Blackheath Halls Opera patron Ailish Tynan and some of opera’s leading stars present a glittering evening of operatic favourites, to raise money for our community projects including this year’s Blackheath Halls Community Opera, Handel’s Semele.

Presented by BBC In Tune‘s Sean Rafferty, expect an evening of wonderful singing from some fabulous performers including soon-to-be lead in the Royal Opera House production of Verdi’s Aida and two time Grammy Award winner, Angel Blue.

Also performing on the night, will be our new Patron, internationally acclaimed soprano Ailish Tynan who has just finished a run at the Royal Opera House playing Berta in Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. Ailish has worked tirelessly with us to put this special event together.

Event Timings:

The audience will be seated at tables and presented with Prosecco on arrival and a light supper.

Guests can either book an entire table for 10 people or individual seats at a table of their choice.

If you would like to book a table for more than 10 people, please call the Box Office on 020 8463 0100 to see if we can accommodate your needs.

We hugely enjoyed the gala evening, and so did our guests, Nicky was on amazing form, and the singers were fantastic. We particularly enjoyed the Youth Choir’s participation, and thought that both their sections were beautifully chosen to show off their singing and enthusiasm.
