For the first time in memory, a cruise on the River Thames dedicated to Opera!
Opera has become extremely popular in recent years due to easier accessibility to a wider audience. Opera superstars such as Pavarotti, Carreras, Domingo and our home grown talents including Bryn Terfel, Catherine Jenkins and Lesley Garret have taken away any misconceptions of elitist image and have brought Opera into the mainstream. Opera is now a fixture of many bars and restaurants. We hope to bring this unique experience to the Thames for the 1st time onboard our luxurious Arcadian King Edward.
Various dates available
Westminster Pier 7pm – 11pm
Opera Singer performing a variety of popular arias and classic opera, Italian Buffet, Welcome glass of Prosecco , ½ bottle of Italian wine per person and 1st interval Prosecco
