The Company

Who are we?

Into Opera is a company committed to creating engaging, imaginative and relevant opera experiences. The projects we create seek to develop new and long-lasting audiences for opera. We work with a range of artists across many creative disciplines who have fallen in love with opera, one way or another! As a team we are all passionate about sharing our experience of this immersive, powerful and multidisciplinary art form with as many people as possible. Our shared goal is to get more people into opera.
