Opera in Song - OHP

Opera at Holland Park with Julien van Mellaerts, 25-27 July

Looking for an open-air evening of opera favourites, with a roof covering just in case of rain? Then don't miss Opera in Song, the three-night series of recitals at Opera Holland Park. New Zealand baritone Julien van Mellaerts, fresh from wowing audiences as Count Almaviva in OHP's production of Figaro, sings as well as curates the programmes. Julien is well-known as one of the Whanau Voices of Aotearoa, whose superb concert in the Royal Albert Hall last year lifted spirits here and in New Zealand. OHP's clever new open-sided auditorium provides that summer outdoor feeling while the seating ensures social distancing is observed.


If Cabaret's your thing…Lonely House, 20-21 August

Join Barrie Kosky, Australian Artistic Director of Berlin's Komische Oper, and singer/actor Katherine Mehrling for a sophisticated soiree at the Edinburgh International Festival. Enjoy French chansons and Broadway sensations from one of Germany's most distinctive and controversial composers Kurt Weill, drawn from his time in exile in Paris and New York.

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis - Carnage

Or, how about Nick Cave and Warren Ellis?

September sees the start of their first ever tour as a duo. Carnage Tour 2021 will play 20 shows across the UK. Recorded during lockdown, Cave describes the record as 'a brutal but very beautiful record embedded in a communal catastrophe'. General sale begins Friday 23 July at 10am.

Vernon Ah Kee - tall man (2010)

A Year in Art: Australia 1992 Review, Dreams and Nightmares, Tate Modern

'The show beguiles with the richness and variety of indigenous Australian art, framing it emphatically as contemporary' – Financial Times

Taking as its starting point the landmark 1992 High Court ruling in favour of Torres Strait Islander land-rights activist Edo Koiki Mabo, this exhibition brings together works, many previously unseen in the UK, which respond to debates around land rights and the ongoing impact of colonisation. Includes works by Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Gordon Bennett, Vernon Ah Kee, Bonita Ely, Judy Watson.

Entrance is free; the exhibition runs until spring 2022.
