Opera Minima - Quality Opera in unexpected places!
Based in a small village in the East Midlands, we run residential weekends for young professional opera singers with coaching by established professionals;
give semi-staged performances of one-act operas, reductions of full length operas and themed programmes with piano accompaniment;
run workshops in local state schools and in the local community culminating in public performances.
In 2007, after its world premiere in The Old Corset Factory, we toured Rainforest, an Opera Minima commission by Martin Read, to five counties. In July 2009, we toured the opera to 6 state schools and gave 2 further public performances.
In November 2009, we will perform "Don Carlo in love" in three venues in Leicestershire and plan an all-Mozart programme in April 2010.
