About Us

We commission new and exciting opera from up-and-coming composers, that we create with a new generation of talent in site-specific productions in unusual venues.

Since our debut with Snow in 2017 we have also  combined the stories of Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs and retold the story of Robin Hood.

We kept creating after the pandemic put live performances on hold, and the resulting Episodes won an RPS Inspiration Award that celebrates work created during lockdown. 

This was followed by our first audiobook for children (Dewi in the Deep) and, in 2022, our return to live performance with Beauty and the Seven Beasts. 

Our latest production, The Yellow Wallpaper, was performed at the Copenhagen Opera Festival in August 2023, before having its UK Premiere at Sadler’s Wells Lilian Baylis Studio in September 2023.

April 2024 will see our debut at the Royal Opera House in London, as we adapt Dewi in the Deep to the live stage.

Stay in touch to hear about our future productions, we have very exciting plans in store!

Opera is costly to produce and depends on the love and generosity of the many people that feel passionate about it and want to share it with others and keep it as an important part of our lives. We are convinced that in times like these it is more important than ever to keep creating music and are very thankful for our past and current supporters, without whom this work would not be possible.
