Welcome to Kennet Opera!
Kennet Opera was founded in 1994 to bring grand opera and concert song to Newbury and the surrounding areas. Grand opera is at the heart of what we do, and we staged a major production, sung in English, every year between 1994 and 2019.
Staged productions have been on hold since the first lockdown. But we presented two outdoor concerts in 2020, and two more of those, and an indoor one, in 2021. We start rehearsing in August for our December Christmas show — Details here.
We remain a singing family, united by our love of opera, even if meeting a bit less face to face! And we want, as much as ever, to hear from singers, musicians and people from all the arts and crafts behind opera. We're here.
