Opera lovers will be able to enjoy performances of La Boheme and The Magic Flute from their cars in the grounds of the Muswell Hill landmark
English National Opera is to stage socially-distanced drive through performances in the grounds of Alexandra Palace.
‘Drive&Live’ will see audiences stay in the safety of their cars throughout the show at the Muswell Hill landmark.
ENO, which has rehearsal rooms in West Hampstead, plan a series of 90 minute performances of 12 different operas in the first three weeks of September.
The series includes a one-hour family-friendly adaptation of Mozart’s The Magic Flute and a shortened version of Puccini’s La Boheme - with singers and musicians spaced out in accordance with government guidelines.

“Drive & Live will allow people to continue to social distance within the safety of their own vehicles whilst enjoying a super-sized live opera performance and the work of ENO’s award-winning forces,” revealed a spokeswoman.
