One of many reasons Opera Holland Park Friends exists is to give financial support to Opera Holland Park's productions. The 2011 production syndicate aims to raise much needed funds to bring OHP's new production of Rigoletto, one of the best-known of all great chorus operas, to the stage.
It ran from 12:00 AM, 1 November 2010 to 12:00 AM, 1 August 2011
OHP operates on a small but carefully spent budget. Rigoletto is one of the great chorus operas, requiring strong lead voices and large forces, both on stage and in the orchestra pit. The great works of Verdi's midd-to-late career are particularly expensive to stage well.
The extra funding from the production syndicate will help to make a difference in many ways. Depending on the amount raised, this may mean the opportunity to schedule an extra rehearsal, with the orchestra, the chance to cast a specific singer, the ability to engage a larger chorus or additional funding for scenery, costumes or props.
