Map & Directions



  • Uncover the story - Each summer, in a spectacular new opera house nestled inside a stable block on the Nevill Holt estate, a cast of the UK’s most talented young opera singers take to the stage. Nevill Holt Opera’s permanent home is one of the most uniquely intimate opera houses in the UK. Secrets are rarely this well-hidden. <hr> Nevill Holt Hall, a Grade I listed building dating back to before 1300, was once the home of the Cunard shipping family. It stands on a hilltop with panoramic views of the beautiful Leicestershire countryside. <hr> During its annual summer festival, Nevill Holt Opera welcomes audiences to enjoy Nevill Holt’s fragrant walled gardens and expansive lawns, alongside an outstanding collection of British art and sculpture. There is plenty of time to enjoy a special dinner or delicious picnic in the grounds before the performance commences. <hr> At Nevill Holt Opera, audiences will hear the UK’s most talented young artists at the start of their career. Many of these young opera singers later go on to the stage of the Royal Opera House or other grand opera houses around the world. <hr> The new Nevill Holt Opera house is the only opera house to be nominated for RIBA’s prestigious Stirling Prize, and went on to win the Stirling Prize People’s Vote.
