Once again we are working to bring opera back to London with our new production of Francesco Cavalli’s wonderful 1643 fable L’Egisto at the Cockpit Theatre Marylebone, 4-13 June!  The new edition specially commisioned by HGO features period instruments accompanying our gifted singers in a fully-staged production. Watch this space!

Our Annual Opera Concert at St. Michael’s Highgate, featuring stars of recent HGO productions, took place on Saturday 24 October at 18.00.  See the videos as they are released!

HGO  succeeded in bringing live opera back to London with an open-air, socially-distanced production of Gustav Holst’s Sāvitri , a tale of life, death, illusion and hope powerfully resonant with our times. This was the first live opera production in London following the COVID epidemic and brought glowing reviews.


Our 2019 production of  “La Bohème” has WON the NODA London prize for best opera production!


“Ester” has remained postponed from  2020, thanks to COVID-19 – we are rescheduling, and hope to bring news soon.
