Following the success of last year’s production at Totally Thames, The Opera Box have joined forces with MBNA Thames Clippers to create a river cruise with a difference. Embark on a journey to experience opera as you’ve never seen it before with the Thames and the London skyline as your backdrop.

Take in the sights accompanied by Menotti’s The Telephone, a new English translation of La Serva Padrona by Pergolesi and a host of your favourite opera arias. Featuring rising young soprano Elizabeth Karani and distinguished baritone Samuel Pantcheff this promises to be an evening you won’t forget.
