About Hull Urban Opera

Hull Urban Opera is a group of Hull-based artists who are passionate about opera. We formed the company in 2017 to address the lack of home-grown opera in the city, to create an appetite for the visceral power of opera and to generate a roster of local singers to help sustain it.

We make opera accessible by performing high-quality and intriguing work, much of it new, in venues which are easy to get to, have no stigma attached and allow comfortable access for disabled people. Our work falls into three complementary streams - street-opera, indoor work and education.
