Last year, 2020, was Surrey Opera's 50th Anniversary

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus pandemic prevented us from staging two planned productions, so we intend to stage them this year (2021) instead:

Don Giovanni by Mozart – if the pandemic allows, we are provisionally booked to perform it from July 12th to July 16th 2021 at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall.

We hope to perform the World Première of David Hackbridge Johnson’s dramatic three act opera Madeleine based on the true story of Madeleine Hamilton Smith, with a libretto sourced, adapted and written by Surrey Opera’s Artistic Director Jonathan Butcher. This link might be of interest.

Surrey Opera 50th Anniversary bone china mugs are still available. Please contact Jonathan Butcher to place your order.
