Friday 26th and Saturday 27th July 2024. Enjoy two opera performances, as guests of Sarah, Countess of Leicester, at the annual Holkham Operas. The operas are held in the Marble Hall, at Holkham; the magnificent 18th Century Palladian mansion on the Holkham Estate in North Norfolk, home of the Earls of Leicester. Included are two nights stay in at the Holkham-owned Victoria Hotel. Diva Opera returns annually to the magnificent setting of the Marble Hall at Holkham. Giving over 50 performances each year, Diva Opera are now ambassadors for chamber opera internationally and in 2024 will perform The Barber of Seville by Rossini and La Traviata by Verdi. Performances begin at 7pm, with an hour-long interval for supper on the terraces of Holkham Hall, as Lady Leicester’s guests. If weather is inclement, supper will take place in the Hall. Customary dress for the two evenings is Black Tie (but optional). After each opera performance, relax at The Victoria Hotel. Ideally situated moments from the golden sands of Holkham National Nature Reserve and Beach, it is a perfect base to discover Norfolk’s windswept coastline, seaside towns and spectacular countryside. Your stay for the two nights will be in Room 19; a spacious suite with dual aspect, located in Ancient House, an annexe to The Victoria. The room has a king-size bed, separate living room and the large bathroom has a roll top bath and walk-in shower. The package is for two adults and includes tickets to each evening opera performance, with supper included, on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th July. The stay at The Victoria is for the same two people sharing Room 19 for the two nights (26th/27th July) on a bed and breakfast basis.  Visit for more information.
