Opera Singers for Corporate and Private Events & Theatre Apperances

Opera is about passion – and we are passionate about Opera! London Festival Opera creates outstanding, bespoke performances of the highest artistic standards in the UK and internationally for special events, theatre and festival appearances, charity events, weddings and private parties. We have 30 years’ experience sourcing and working with the very best opera singers and classical singers and presenting opera for a wide range of occasions and an impressive variety of clients; everything from large-scale VIP galas for global corporate clients to intimate private parties for individuals wishing to give their guests a really special evening.  During the Lockdown we pioneered ‘Zoom Opera Galas’.  Please contact us to discuss how this can enhance your online party celebration.

Despite the challenges of Covid we are now very much back in business and work to stage performances within the current Government guidelines

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.

We are thrilled to be developing our programme ‘Opera Magic – a children’s guide to opera’ 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. An evening with London Festival Opera is an exhilarating experience.  We will work with you to create a superb, tailor-made and thoroughly entertaining programme you and your guests will remember for ever, a performance which will appeal to opera lovers and newcomers alike.

There is a misconception that opera is stuffy and serious which could not be further from the truth.  Opera is about love and passion and there are many fun elements.  You could surprise your audience with waiters bursting into song, or even have an operatic version of a pop song such as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.  We can also write unique words to a celebrated aria to entertain your guest of honour.

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.

London Festival Opera is under the artistic direction of a professional opera singer.  Following a successful solo career with the major British companies, the baritone Philip Blake-Jones founded London Festival Opera in 1989. Based in the UK, our singers have performed for Presidents, Prime Ministers and senior members of the British and European Royal Families.  Recent engagements have been in London, Rome, Paris, Hamburg, Brussels, Monte Carlo, Moscow, Marrakech, Mumbai, Barbados and Hong Kong.

Engagements have included a private performance in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, charity performances for the Presidents of France and Malta, for the Prime Minster at 10 Downing Street, the Ambassador at the British Embassy in Paris, and as a guest company in one of Italy’s greatest opera houses, La Fenice in Venice during the Carnival Celebrations. London Festival Opera’s track record says it all; with 30 years’ experience the company has established itself as the market leader in providing live opera of the highest calibre.
