Richmond Opera, based in West London, puts on 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 amateur group led by professionals and have a range of members including singers, dancers and orchestral players.
We aim for the highest musical and performance standards, holding internal and external auditions for key solo 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.
Formerly Isleworth Baroque, we generally perform 17th and 18th century works, especially Handel, Purcell, the great French baroque composers and Mozart, in our main Autumn productions. Other concerts can range from early music to Gilbert and Sullivan and 20th century songs from the shows.
Our Musical Director is Lindsay Bramley, a professional conductor and opera singer, aided by singer and music educationalist Lucy Green who is our Stage Director and Assistant Musical Director.
