This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Celebrate Christmas with a very special performance by the English National Opera (ENO) here at Cheltenham Town Hall. Cheltenham is thrilled to host the critically acclaimed orchestra and chorus for a one-off Christmas evening performance which is set to be a magical experience. The confirmed festive programme will include Vaughan William’s O Little Town of Bethlehem, Handels’s Messiah Excerpts, Anderson’s A Christmas Festival and Sleigh Ride with an encore of We Wish You a Merry Christmas with conductor Martyn Brabbins.

The ENO Chorus is one of the finest professional operatic ensembles in the UK and is committed to bringing opera to the widest possible audiences in theatrically inventive productions. Performing repertoire from Henry Purcell to Philip Glass, their recent notable successes include major new productions of Otello, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and The Force of Destiny. They have performed at Het Muziektheater, Amsterdam, the BBC Proms and sung at the Barbican.

The performance is unmissable for ENO’s wonderful chorus, surely unmatchable music this side of St. Petersburg – Sunday Times
