Maria Stuarda: Cast Up Close

We've got some new faces for you to meet!

This fabulous cast are bringing you some serious vocal fireworks this autumn in OperaUpClose's new English version of Donizetti's Maria Stuarda. And when we say fireworks, we mean it, some performances have a limited seating capacity of only fifty seats! So you're going to get to know this gang fairly well. More info and tickets here:

OperaUpClose's 8th Birthday

Happy Birthday (to us!) 

On 7th December 2017, OperaUpClose turned 8. We spent the evening with a few of our Friends & Patrons at the Eugene Onegin Friends' Night, which included a post-show chat with librettist (and our Artistic Director!) Robin Norton-Hale, director Lucy Bradley, co-orchestrator James Widden and musical director Sonia Ben-Santamaria.

(You can listen to the post show chat here!) 

A little something from Artistic Director, Robin Norton-Hale:

"I can hardly believe it is 8 years tonight since our first performance of La Bohème, in a tiny room above the gloriously ungentrified Cock Tavern in Kilburn. I could never have guessed then what a huge part of my life this wonderful company, and so many singers, directors, designers and audience members would be. Thank you so much for being part of the company - because without our audience, none of this would have happened."
