Live Opera at The Landmark Hotel, London

28th Sep 2011

It’s October next week, how did we get here so quickly? And what is happening to our summers? Wet and windy through the traditional summer months and as soon as we hit the end of September the sun comes out to remind us what could have been! Despite the weather it’s been a great summer at Opera Bespoke HQ. Our surprise opera singing waiters act has gone from strength to strength performing for the GIC, one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, at the Institute of Directors on Pall Mall, at a VIP event at Soho House, Soho and at numerous glorious weddings throughout the UK.
And now the summer is coming to an end we are looking forward to some fantastic live opera winter events. In November we are delighted to be providing live opera gala entertainment at The Landmark Hotel London in the luxurious Winter Garden for an evening of musical entertainment and fine dining. The live opera gala dinner will comprise of a six-course dinner with matching wines, interspersed by segments of popular opera. This special evening marks the first in a series of seasonal opera gala dinners for 2012 at the Landmark Hotel in collaboration with Opera Bespoke.
On Thursday 3 November 2011 guests will be seated in the stunning surrounds of the five star hotel’s Winter Garden with its soaring eight-storey glass-roof atrium - a fitting location for a sophisticated evening of opera - to enjoy a glass of chilled Champagne and an amuse-bouche. Following a sumptuous starter accompanied by an expertly matched glass of wine the first live musical interlude will begin: commencing with excerpts of early opera from Handel and Mozart, guests will traverse the ages of opera with music by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and Strauss in three 20 minute sessions of popular arias.
Our professional opera singers – a soprano, mezzo soprano and a tenor who have performed with the country’s top opera houses and orchestras – will sing in costume accompanied by our professional and highly regarded pianist, while between each live operatic segment another delectable course will be served from a special menu created by Martin Geschwindt Winter Garden's Head Chef in collaboration with the Executive Chef Gary Klaner to compliment this magical evening.
We hope that you are able to join us on this very special evening.
