Superb and idiomatic playing from the orchestra, powerful, seductive”

Opera, September 2012
(Katya Kabanova, Longborough Festival Opera)

Welcome to Opera Project’s 26th Season. The past three years have seen huge change at Opera Project for the reason that, in 2016, the company’s directors, Richard Studer and Jonathan Lyness, were appointed as Artistic Director and Music Director respectively of the brilliant Welsh touring company Mid Wales Opera.

Inevitably Opera Project’s workload has been reduced slightly, with no traditional small-scale company tour. However, the company still remains central to its artistic directors’ long-term thinking and, to this end, the company gives details here of two major productions for 2019.

To begin with, Richard and Jonathan form the creative team behind West Green House Opera’s new production of Johann Strauss’s great masterpiece Die Fledermaus, which opens on 20th July 2019. Then, in the autumn, Opera Project return to Bristol to collaborate once more with Tobacco Factory Theatres to stage a new co-production of The Barber of Seville. Casting for both operas is currently underway and full details will be announced shortly.



20 and 21 July (7.00pm).
