Due to London’s move to Tier 3, it is with sadness that we must cancel all the scheduled performances of Royal Opera Christmas Concertfor live audiences.We are pleased to livestream a performance on Friday 18 December.

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, David Butt Philip, 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.
