Wiltons Music Hall

Went there last night and saw Handel's Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno (The Triumph of Time and Truth) by Transition Opera.

I'd urge you to go and see it. Although I think there's probably only one or two performances left.
Very interesting mixture of decaying music hall, baroque period instruments, strong voices and projections (back and live capture from video camera).

As you can read on the Wiltons site, it's the oldest surviving grand music hall from the 1850s. You wouldn't know it's there. Sandwiched between South Smithfields road (busy, polluted), the DLR and some rough estates.
