In light of current restrictions ‘Make Opera Live Again’ with the Chelsea Opera Group has unfortunately now been cancelled.

Chelsea Opera Group worked tirelessly to reschedule the performance to a later date. However, due to national and travel restrictions, this has not been possible.

We are doing our utmost to support the national effort in reducing the spread of coronavirus and the health and well-being of all our visitors, staff members, and visiting performers is our number one priority.

We will be crediting all bookers with a Cadogan Hall credit voucher for the full value of their tickets. Of course, if you prefer, we can organise a refund for the full cost of any tickets and prosecco vouchers to your original payment method instead. To arrange this, please call the box office on 020 7730 4500 (Monday – Friday, 10am to 3pm) or fill in our online form with full details of your booking.

Thank you for continued support and we look forward to welcoming you as soon as possible.

A socially-distanced celebration of live opera works, carefully chosen to excite and satisfy once more after a long, arduous summer. Leading international star, Helena Dix, soprano, returns to the live stage with Chelsea Opera Group to sing favourites to a social-distanced audience in the Hall. Also making a repeat appearance with Chelsea Opera Group, tenor Christopher Turner, and mezzo-soprano Catherine Carby join her on stage. Completing the quartet will be baritone Julien Van Mellaerts in his first appearance for Chelsea Opera Group. This exciting event, carefully arranged to meet all current guidance to keep the audience safe and comfortable, is led by conductor Gary Matthewman and includes aria and ensembles from popular works by Verdi, Mozart, Bellini and Donizetti.
