We are delighted to announce that we have Picnic Boxes and a special Opera Supper available during the interval, with menu options detailed below. Picnic Boxes are £12 per box (menu here), and the Opera Supper is £85 per person (menu here), preceded by a champagne reception.

Please pre-order your food when booking your tickets (also available online), or if you have already booked tickets and would like to join us for food, please contact our Box Office on 0845 40 24 001 during opening hours.

East meets West with tragic consequences in this most heart-rending of operas.  Puccini’s poignant and gloriously romantic score illuminates the devastating tale of the young Japanese Geisha Cho-Cho-San who falls in love with dashing American naval officer Pinkerton.  Unrequited love, abandonment and betrayal lead to a climactic and agonising final sacrifice.

We’re delighted to welcome Opera a la Carte, sister company of Regents Opera, to St George’s for this evening of summer opera.  One of the UK’s most original chamber opera companies, it draws established talents and rising stars, including from Covent Garden and ENO.

Please note: This production is sung in Italian, and features costumes and some stage furniture. The music is performed by a small chamber ensemble.

An hour long picnic interval between Acts I and II allows time for you to reserve a place for our special opera supper menu in our new Café Bar, or book one of our delicious picnic boxes.
