Group Convener: Alan Whitehouse
We are so lucky these days to have opera shown in local cinemas at a fraction of the cost of an opera house (let alone the flight to New York). We see the living streaming of productions from the New York Metropolitan Opera House, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and Glyndebourne

❑ We see the live streaming (members buy their own tickets) and then walk a couple of minutes to a member’s house across the road in Rosebery Gardens for a drink and a chat

❑ There is no limit on the numbers joining the group and all members get a monthly update on what is happening in the world of opera but, as the after-show socials are in a domestic environment, numbers for these are limited to a maximum of twelve participants
When and where
Usually in the evening (New York Metropolitan Opera broadcasts on Saturdays), with some matinées
Picturehouse and sometimes ArtHouse cinemas
Tottenham Lane, Crouch End, N8
Step free access to cinemas
Member’s house for social meeting has 5 steps with a sturdy handrail
Below is the programme of live screenings from the Royal Opera House and the New York Metropolitan Opera House, September 2023 – June 2024. Full information about each opera can be found on the Picturehouse website at Events and Seasons. Start times vary.
