Oxford Opera will seek to give this beautiful city the very best opera experience through live performances featuring the finest soloists available.

Singing in schools

One of Oxford Opera’s core values is to take opera into schools presenting students with an opportunity to not only experience the art form but to also engage with it; be it on-stage; back-stage; lighting; design, costume; composition; directing or orchestral.

Community engagement

Oxford Opera has the community of the city at its heart. It wants the city to be proud of its own opera company through engagement at every level of opportunity.
