Ever wanted to be the boss?

You don’t have to be Cecil B de Mille to have your say at our unique Opera Excerpts Concert.

It’s been a tough year so we’ve dreamed up something extra special for our next live concert. We can’t give you a date just yet, but as soon as restrictions allow, we’ll let you have all the details.

For the first time, we’re asking you to audition us!

We’re preparing highlights from a varied list of four of the best operas written in the last 100 years and Artistic Director Russell Plows, will walk you through them. We’ll then ask you to rank them and the opera you choose will receive a full performance in 2022!

It’s going to be friendly and atmospheric and, this time, benefits from the wonderful acoustic of the Paragon Station Old Ticket Office.
