Richmond Opera, based in West London, presents one fully-staged opera and one major concert a year, along with a variety of smaller informal events including members’ concerts and one-off performances. We are an inclusive community group which welcomes amateurs and aspiring professionals. We are led by professionals and our members include singers, dancers and orchestral players as well as those involved in back-stage production.
We aim for the highest musical and performance standards, holding internal and external auditions for key solo singing roles although, whenever possible, we cast existing members in solo roles. Anyone is welcome to join the chorus and also be considered for solo roles.
Our Musical Director is Lindsay Bramley, a professional conductor and opera singer. We are pleased to announce that the Stage Director for our next production Dragon of Wantley is Louise Bakker.

Wantley village near Sheffield is terrorised by a child-gobbling dragon, and local hero Moore of Moore Hall is entreated to put his drinking and womanising aside to take matters in hand. His methods are unorthodox to say the least…
This delightful Handel pastiche is a pantomime romp, accompanied by Baroque orchestra and fully staged by Richmond Opera in the lovely Victorian-era Normansfield Theatre.
