Providing top-class productions, featuring the best UK-based professionals alongside giving opportunity to the local young people to work in a professional production is a unique aspect of our work. Alongside our main-stage work, our continuing provision of education and outreach workshops available to any and all in the county and our ‘restoration’ programme in collaboration with oxford health NHS, Oxford Opera is committed to using music, theatre and the creative disciplines to enrich the lives of all members of the county of Oxfordshire which the company serves.

“World class opera for everyone – with the people at its heart.”
