Opera at Syon 2018

Once again, Diva Opera provided two stunning evenings of entertainment, with productions of Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail and Die Fledermaus by Johan Strauss II

The event raised over £120,000 this year – an outstanding achievement.

Delicious picnics were served during the interval, all within the beautiful Great Conservatory in Syon Park, the London home of the Duke of Northumberland.

This is the 27th year we have presented opera in this beautiful setting.
