Since its opening night on Friday the 8th of June, Opera Holland Park’s ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ has welcomed outstanding reviews, in particular for Thomas Kemp who ‘makes an exceptional debut as an opera conductor and coaxes a ravishing blend of colours and expression from the supple, responsive City of London Sinfonia’ (

The Times notes Kemp’s conducting style as he ‘gives the singers sensitive support, while keeping the score and the action racing ahead to its dark and uneasy conclusion’, whilst his conducting is also duly noted by The Evening Standard: ‘under Thomas Kemp, the City of London Sinfonia’s wind section proves attractively pungent’ . The ‘captivating performance’ of the opening night is sure to bring in the crowds, drawn in by Opera Holland Park’s ‘electric’ atmosphere (The Upcoming). Tickets for the remaining performances are available via the Opera Holland Park website.
