Nevill Holt Theatre shortlisted for 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize

Artistic Director Nicholas Chalmers remarks, ‘Nevill Holt Opera is so proud of its new home and we are delighted that the theatre has been nominated for this prestigious award. The new building has an incredible acoustic, allowing our growing audience to experience opera, with complete clarity, in an exquisite setting. The mixture of building materials, both old and new, support the projection of young voices and have been thrilling our audiences since the opening in 2018. We are so privileged to be able to perform in this award-winning building and incredibly grateful to the David Ross Foundation for investing in a new theatre for the arts in the East Midlands.’
