  • 7, 9 and 10th Aug: Zemlinsky’s A Florentine Tragedy at Opera in the city festival ** TICKETS AVAILABLE** Wilde + Zemlinksy opera in the new festival in town. After the Mozart & Salieri + Zanetto I really recommend this. You can get more info about the opera here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01mssc6 skateartguy will be there
  • 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12th Aug: Lully’s Armide by Ensemble OrQuesta at Arcola’s Grimeborn TICKETS AVAILABLE It looks like french Baroque opera is not so popular in London audiences. That’s why this is a prefect chance for listening to the amazing work by Lully. skateartguy will be there
