From our Music Director

Welcome to Opera South. I am proud to be Music Director of one of the leading small opera companies in the UK. Whether you are a seasoned opera-goer or new to opera I hope you will join us on our creative journey through opera, and find something in our season to capture your interest. Our brilliant team works tirelessly to put together a varied offering of staged productions, concerts, dinners, lectures, educational workshops and even a wine and opera tasting event. All of this is designed to further Opera South’s aims: to support rising young stars and to explore less familiar repertoire alongside the classics.

As Music Director I have a strong vision of where an opera company belongs in the community. An important part of this is our relationship with you – our loyal audience members. Live opera needs you and there has never been a better time to support a thriving and ambitious regional company that performs at the highest level. Join us as we explore the extraordinary world of opera!
