Opera Interludes is the associate company of London Festival Opera

It has been an honour to perform for members of the Royal Family on many occasions including a private performance in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II.  Other performances have been in the presence of His Majesty King Charles III, HRH The Princess Royal and TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex.

London Festival Opera is one of the world’s leading independent touring opera companies and engages distinguished opera singers from the major British opera companies, including the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, English National Opera, Glyndebourne and also features exceptional young artists at the beginning of their international careers.

Opera needs an accompaniment.  If a piano is not available or practical we can present a performance with orchestral backing tracks.  We can bring our own amplification equipment making it possible to perform in any setting.

We are thrilled to be developing our programme ‘Opera Magic and have already introduced thousands of children to the magical world of opera.  Join us in helping to introduce the next generation to this wonderful artform.

Nothing beats the thrill of hearing a live opera performance whether in a theatre or auditorium or in the intimacy of a private party.  Opera transcends language and is therefore an ideal entertainment for corporate events, international conferences and other multi-national special events.  We will work with you to create a superb, tailor-made and thoroughly entertaining programme you and your guests will remember for ever in a performance which will appeal to opera lovers and newcomers alike.  An evening with the singers from London Festival Opera is an exhilarating experience.

There is a misconception that opera is stuffy and serious but opera is about love and passion and there are many fun elements.  You could surprise your audience with waiters or fellow party guests bursting into song, or have an operatic version of a pop song such as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

Opera is an entertainment that needs to be of the very highest calibre and we guarantee to provide you with a performance that will exceed your expectations and that you will always remember.
