Foundry: (def) A place to (v.t) melt, mold,
fuse, develop, create, make.
We are an innovative opera company dedicated to the performance of living, breathing opera. Based in Surrey, we perform across the county and the London area. We aspire to present distinctive opera that captures the imagination through talented voices, committed acting and most importantly a passion for taking a fresh perspective on the repertoire we sing - all whilst offering important performance opportunities for emerging singers.
However there will be no clutching of pearls and no opera glasses required.
Whether the beauty of traditional repertoire, an exciting translation, or a new contemporary piece, our vibrant singers carefully bring each piece to life, led and supported by experienced musical staff. All music is approached with vocal ideals necessary to opera, whether we are performing Mozart, Britten, Verdi, Puccini or an exciting new composer yet to be heard.
Our performances are intimate, immersive, modern, thought- provoking, passionate.
They may involve heart-wrenching romance, enchantingly dark fairytales or gritty realism, sung by some of the finest emergent, professional and pre-professional singers of all ages drawn from southern England.
We are a Foundry for opera talent.
As well as producing high quality events for our growing audience Opera Foundry has always had the aim of supporting and developing opera singers at it's core.
Alongside offering vital performance experience for talented emerging singers from all backgrounds, we offer each singer dedicated time with a professional vocal coach and Musical Director as part of rehearsal time. Mixing new emerging singers with more established professionals allows an exchange of experience and broadens the age range of the group, allowing for a greater diversity of repertoire and voice.
We have supported the careers of singers who have graduated from some of the finest international music colleges alongside those who have taken alternative paths into opera, and those currently working in the professional music world.
