The Future shaped by the Past

Opera South is continually working on future programmes and expanding its involvement with the community.

Note on language of opera titles
Because the company presents opera performed in English, the English titles are generally given first in this list. Where operas are better known even to English speaking audiences by their titles in some other language, that title is listed.
