We believe that opera is an immensely rich art form that remains relevant to today’s world, and are committed to maintaining its vitality by contributing to the renewal and expansion of the repertory.
To do this, we commission new and exciting work from up-and-coming composers, that we produce and perform with a new generation of opera talent in site-specific productions in intimate and unusual venues around Peckham.
We invite you to follow us on this journey, and re-discover these stories that you thought you knew well, re-told through the language of opera!
We made our debut with Snow, presenting the work of three composers using the three floors of The Bussey Building, a former cricket bat factory. Then we took over the Copeland Gallery with a production that combined the stories of Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs and showed them under new light. For our third year, we returned to the Bussey Building with a new multi-floor production retelling the story of Robin Hood.
Our fourth opera, Pandora’s Box, was postponed with the ongoing health crisis, but we hope it will take place in 2021.
