Dinner with Opera

Due to the huge success of our previous Dinner with Opera evenings, we are proud to announce two new events in 2016. These exclusive evenings will commence at 7.00pm with a drinks reception and a selection of canapés in the Music Room, followed by a spectacular four course gourmet dinner served in the elegant Marie Antoinette Suite with matching wines created by Executive Chef, John Williams, MBE and Head Sommelier Giovanni Ferlito.

After the indulgence of your main course you will be guided to The Music Room to enjoy a 45 minute Opera performance from Soprano Miranda Heldt, Mezzo Soprano Kate Symonds, and Tenor Daniel Joy. These musicians have performed around the world, and their astounding voices will enthral you with a selection of solo, duo and ensemble pieces.

This performance will be followed by a delicious dessert and tea or coffee served in The Marie Antoinette Suite.
