Opera Makers

Operatic excerpts from the Guildhall School

New opera at the Guildhall School

Performed by singers and repetiteurs from the first year of the Guildhall Opera Course, Opera Makers features new works written by composers and librettists on Guildhall’s MA in Opera Making & Writing

This innovative programme delivered in association with the Royal Opera House enables writers and composers to write specifically for the singers, and to develop the pieces with them. The new operas will be performed with a small orchestral ensemble, and will be linked by scenes from existing opera repertoire performed with piano accompaniment.

Promoted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

On general sale from Tuesday 3 April 2018.
