In conjunction with the Old Royal Naval College and Greenwich Performs, Opera Prelude's finest Young Artists present a classical concert with harpsichord and Baroque Ensemble, celebrating the restoration of The Painted Hall. Join us for a glorious programme exploring our musical heritage and how the monarchy shaped the history of British music. 

The Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich is one of the most spectacular and important baroque interiors in Europe. Its ceiling and wall decorations were conceived and executed by the British artist Sir James Thornhill between 1707 and 1726 at the pivotal moment when the United Kingdom was created and became a dominant power in Europe.
