The Opera Box

Sail into the evening and enjoy an intimate performance by the singers of The Opera Box, with London’s stunning views as a backdrop.

Following the sell-out success of last year’s production during Totally Thames, The Opera Box has joined forces with MBNA Thames Clippers to create a river cruise with a difference. Take in the sights of London accompanied by Menotti’s The Telephone, a new English translation of La Serva Padrona by Pergolesi and a host of your favourite opera arias. Featuring rising young soprano Elizabeth Karani and distinguished baritone Samuel Pantcheff, this promises to be an unforgettable evening.

The Thames Opera Cruise sails from London Bridge pier on Saturday 23rd September at 19:15, returning at approximately 21:30.

 A licensed bar will be available on board to buy beers, wine and spirits as well as light snacks and hot drinks.
