Opera in Situ is an exciting, new Cardiff-based company which takes opera out of the theatre and into unique, unexpected places making it accessible to all. The inclusivity of the company is something we’re very proud of and it means that our performers come from a wide spectrum of musical experience.
For our first project we will be taking over several unusual venues including a converted cinema, an indoor skate park and a church where we will present a series of scenes from opera that take place in street settings. We’ve taken our inspiration from Kurt Weill’s American opera ‘Street Scene’ and numbers from it will form part of the event.
We are also in the process of forging relationships with a number of other venues for future projects so watch this space.
Our events, performed in English whenever possible will create unique, intimate and unforgettable experiences, making opera accessible to everyone.
We hope you will be able to follow us on our journey.
