Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
We've got together with Quirky Olive, the specialist holiday providers, to give you the chance to see L'elisir d'amore at the Royal Opera House.
Quirky Olive don’t offer “run of the mill” holidays - their focus is very much on the experiences typical of unseen Italy that they share with you. They prefer to select some great activities that are healthily interspersed with times to relax, and then they bring out the quirky of their name in rustling up something special and unique that will leave you with priceless memories to take home.
