It is with sadness that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Opera at Syon.
We know this will come as a huge disappointment to all those that kindly support the organisation of and attend this much-loved event, but want to reassure you that the we will be back to host the 30th Anniversary Opera at Syon in June 2022, when we are more hopeful that additional restrictions, limitations on numbers and other factors relating to the pandemic are less likely to have an impact on the format of this much loved event.
We are hoping to confirm the dates of the 2022 event very soon, but should you wish to be notified as soon as tickets are on sale, then please register your interest in joining us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are excited to offer a wide range of opportunities for businesses to support the 30th Anniversary Opera at Syon.

We held our 28th year of Opera at Syon on Wednesday 12 June and Thursday 13 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.
