Chamber Wednedays

This year, OperaUpClose return to National Trust’s Sutton House in Hackney, with the world premiere of a newly commissioned song-cycle of Emily Dickinson poems by award-winning composer Nick O'Neill, and Guy Woolfenden’s Songs of Ariel, written for actor Ian Charleson (Eric Liddell in Chariots of Fire) as part of a legendary 1978 Royal Shakespeare Company production of The Tempest. 

We welcome back the wonderful mezzo-soprano Flora McIntosh and tenor Joseph Doody, who premiered our new English version of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda as Mary, Queen of Scots and Lord Leicester at Sutton House last September, accompanied by Nick O’Neill on piano.

The ticket price includes entrance to the National Trust’s Tudor gem, Sutton House, in Hackney.


The ‘Tudor Kitchen Bar’ will be open and serving cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and some snacks. There is no hot drinks or hot food available on the premises.


This performance will take place in the Wenlock Barn on the Ground Floor, suitable for Wheelchair users. There is also a disabled toilet on the ground floor.
Please email to book a wheelchair space for this performance.
