Microsoft co-founder joins opera buffs at Holland Park

AS THIS year’s season of the long-running Holland Park Opera comes to an end, any City opera-goers who were in attendance at the summer run might have spotted a familiar face in the audience.

The Capitalist hears that eagle-eyed afficionados spotted none other than Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in the audience.

No confirmation from Allen himself, although he clearly enjoys a spot of London culture. The US billionaire tweeted earlier this summer that he had taken in a show at the Royal Albert Hall.
