INSTANT OPERA is London's only five star fringe opera company.

Just three years old, we have already fully staged three of Mozart's operatic masterpieces; Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Cosi fan tutte, with full orchestra, sung in Italian (with English surtitles), to delighted audiences. We received a five star review for our sensationally original production of Don Giovanni Our most recent production, prior to lock-down, was Puccini's La bohème which we were finally able to revive in 2022. 


As well as full productions, we put on Grand Opera Galas and offer School Workshop Days with narrated opera experiences for children, again resulting in rave reviews from teachers and parents. We also offer outreach experiences and work with diverse communities, including the local London Korean Choral Society.

Our mission is to produce cutting-edge full opera productions and performances to the highest possible standard. We believe opera should be accessible to all and currently operate as a 'not-for-profit' community based enterprise. We welcome anyone interested to support, or work with us, in any way. Please see our contact page for further details.

During the pandemic lockdowns of 2020 we were thrilled to welcome the eminent international conductor Michael Rosewell as our new patron and look forward to exciting new possibilities in 2022!
