The weather's getting warmer, the days are longer, and Opera Holland Park is back to help you make the most of those balmy summer evenings. From 4 June to 9 August, one of London's most beautiful green spaces comes alive with the sounds of Verdi, Tchaikovsky and Puccini — to name but a few — and we're giving one lucky Londonist reader (and three of their friends) the chance to experience it for free.
Our winner will receive four top tier tickets to see Opera Holland Park's first production of the season: the masterpiece that is Manon Lescaut. The exquisite opera by Tuscan maestro Giacomo Puccini tells the tumultuous tale of a convent girl-turned-courtesan torn between a life of luxury and life of love. Spoiler alert: it's a tragedy, so bring your tissues.
Such a showstopper deserves an suitably dramatic backdrop, and Opera Holland Park's 1000 capacity covered auditorium certainly delivers, situated in the sprawling grounds of the Grade I listed Holland House. Not only will our winner get the best seats in the house, you'll also be treated to free-flowing fizz — plus access to the VIP bar. We really do spoil you.
To enter, just fill in the form below by 11.59pm on Monday 10 June. But if don't fancy leaving it up to Lady Luck, best get a move on and book your own tickets — they're selling out fast!
