Framed as a competition, join stars of the London drag scene Snow White TrashBarbsBeau JanglesFreddie Love and Vinegar Strokes as they go head-to-head in this outlandish contest.

Backed by an orchestra of LGBTQ+ musicians and allies, conducted by Oliver Zeffman, and presided over by a star-studded judging panel (featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race royalty Monét X Change and Thorgy Thor, plus queer operatic tenor megastar Nicky Spence) Classical Drag is set to be a hilarious, colourful, divatastic affair!

Expect big numbers from operas like Carmen, La bohème and Tosca. Prepare for a drag queen Philip Glass tribute, a 'Violin For Your Life' and an exciting interval runway featuring rising stars of the capital’s raucous queer performance scene, hosted by living London legend Jonny Woo. Category is - a night at the opera!

Classical Pride is non-profit, and net proceeds are donated to three important LGBTQ+ charities, Rainbow RailroadTerrence Higgins Trust and GAY TIMES' Amplifund.

Classical Pride is promoted by Ozero Arts, an arts production charity (registered charity number 1155338) founded by British conductor Oliver Zeffman, that produces innovative fan experiences across live and recorded music.
