Having a party, or a wedding, or a corporate event? How about having OperaUpClose perform just for you? 

OperaUpClose is best known for its high quality, fully staged operas, in new English versions, in theatres all across the UK and internationally. However, we have also ‘popped up’ at lots of private parties and events, creating a unique and thrilling experience for guests. 

We’ve performed at birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, private dinner parties, fundraising events, conferences, businesses’ staff parties, Christmas parties, members’ clubs and gala opening events. We can perform in your living room, your garden, a hotel, a church, a conference centre - you name it!  

We’ve reproduced whole, fully staged, productions of our operas in people’s living rooms. We’ve had two or three singers perform some of opera’s greatest hits, in the original language or in our critically-acclaimed English translations, with a just pianist to accompany them, which works very well for short after dinner entertainment or as the focal point for a birthday party. We’ve had a choir sing carols, or support the congregation during a wedding ceremony and soloists perform romantic arias during wedding ceremonies and wedding breakfasts. We’ve had small orchestras providing music all evening for drinks parties. Whatever your event and whatever your budget, we can find something that will look and sound beautiful.    

The singers and instrumentalists with whom we work are some of the very best professionals working in opera in this country. Their high quality will wow your guests, colleagues, or business partners. Those that have booked us in the past have told us the performances have made their parties unforgettable.
