Dates & Prices

June 24th: Don Giovanni

June 25th: Carmen

Tickets: £180 each

The ticket price includes a champagne reception and a delicious picnic, with wine. Coffee is served in the Cactus House following the performance.

Ideally, the weather will be kind enough to allow picnicking on the lawn. Failing that, candle lit tables in the Great Conservatory make a wonderful alternative.

Please note seats for the performance are not reserved, so please arrive early to select your seats to avoid disappointment.

Opera at Syon 2019

We held our 28th year of Opera at Syon on Wednesday 12th June and Thursday 13th June.
Over two nights, guests enjoyed a stunning performance by Diva Opera of L’italiana in Algeri and Madama Butterfly and a delicious dinner in the beautiful setting of the Great Conservatory at Syon Park.

We had some fantastic items up for auction including a week’s holiday in San Francisco, tickets to see The Magic Flute at The Royal Opera House and exclusive jewellery designed by Nada Le Cavelier.
The Opera at Syon evenings have raised an incredible total of over £1.4 million for Children with Cancer UK to date.

We were grateful to be joined at the event by two researchers funded by us, Dr Srdan Rogosic and Professor Sibylle Mittnacht. They spoke about their important research into safer and more effective childhood cancer treatments.

We really appreciate the fantastic support of all who attended Opera at Syon and helped to make it so special.
