Opera Al Fresco At 51 Buckingham Gate

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

London – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

For only four nights, the Courtyard at 51 will be transformed into an outdoor opera house complete with scenes from balconies and views from the VIP veranda amidst starry skies and delightful dining. Performances will be provided by ‘The Covent Garden Strings Company’ who have written the evenings’ performances specifically for the Courtyard at 51 taking into account the surroundings and history of the hotel as well as Shakespeare’s sylvan plays that adorn the hotel’s townhouses, including the famous scene from Romeo and Juliet as depicted in West Side Story.

A three-course gourmet grill experience complements these performances with courses including sauteed tiger prawns with garlic and fresh tomatoes and whole baked sea bass with an almond chermoula. A choice of steaks and traditional grilled dishes will also be available.

These operatic weekends will take place July 30th and 31st and August 20th and 21st, 2010. The Courtyard at 51 is one of London’s true hidden gems exuding tranquility in the heart of central London. Located minutes from the palace and within the grounds of 51 Buckingham Gate, the Courtyard at 51 boasts a beautiful cherub adorned fountain (allegedly donated by Queen Victoria) and the longest Shakespearean frieze, which runs along the fa_ade of the townhouses surrounding the award-winning Courtyard garden. 51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences provides all the comforts of home plus concierge and butler services, nannies, a luxury spa and more.
