Get involved with Operasonic

Opera isn't just for singers. We need a whole team of enthusiastic creative young minds.

Watch It!

You've probably never seen opera - are you missing out? Watch operasonic live (best) or online (second best).

Champion It!

Are you good at spreading the word? We need champions to make a noise about operasonic on social media (and the old bits-of-paper type media stuff too).

Lead It!

An opera should be about now and about you. We need creative young brains like yours to tell us what to make opera about, and help us reshape opera for the future.

Make It!

We don't remake old opera, we make our own new stories which connect with young people. We want you to come and make it with us!

Hear It!

When was the last time music made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Opera can touch your emotions - come and find out for yourself.

In It!

Operasonic needs you. We’ve got projects coming up that you can take part in. You could be a singer, a designer, a composer, a painter, a gamer, a writer - it’s up to you!

We are Operasonic

Inspiring Minds | Expanding Horizons | Launching Fresh Ideas

Operasonic is passionate about opera as an artform that connects with people in a direct and visceral way. We are also passionate about young people and their potential and creativity.

We want to enable young people to own opera, as audiences, as participants, as creators, as leaders. Young people need contemporary opera created on their terms and in their communities, venues, schools, and online spaces. The opera of the future should be driven by them.
