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 can already see productions from the New York Met, Covent Garden and Glyndebourne.

We’ll see the operas (buy your own ticket) and then walk a couple of minutes to a member’s house across the road in Rosebery Gardens for a drink and a chat (except for the first outing, when we’ll gather after the performance at the cinema bar).

When: When there’s an opera showing at the Crouch End cinemas. These are usually in the evening (Met broadcasts on Saturdays), with some matinees.
At the first showing (20 October), we’ll meet afterwards in the bar for a drink. Subsequently we’ll retire to a member’s house across the road.
Where: Picturehouse and sometimes ArtHouse, both on Tottenham Lane, Crouch End, N8.
