Passionate about bringing opera to new spaces and audiences, Rogue Opera creates intimate full-length productions and bespoke events which can be staged almost anywhere. Through our focus on strong acting and staging, we aim to present the composers' incredible music – and the performers' incredible voices – in ways which appeal to both first time audiences and connoisseurs.
Our productions are sung in the original language, with English surtitles and piano or instrumental accompaniment, for 50-300 people. With the audience close enough to see blood, sweat and tears and to feel the vibration in every note, a Rogue Opera performance is live theatre at its most personal.
As well as presenting shows in traditional theatre spaces in London, St Albans, Bournemouth and Deal, we have also transformed a 15th century barn in Kent into a theatre for 90 people and brought a special show to a North London synagogue. Pop up performances in parks, retail centres and on the High Street bring opera into everyday experience. We also create high-end conference opener performances and fun and engaging team-building workshops.

VIP PASS MEMBER TESTIMONIALS
I have been into a lot of different music in my 44 years of life. I have been to see Metallica to Lisa Loeb, hard house to folk festivals and Jazz clubs to rap shows. Since listening and watching online over the few months I have become more educated about opera and more of a fan of opera in general!
These online performances are engaging and create a magical atmosphere!
Bronwen's relaxed and amiable interaction with her audience explaining the story behind each musical piece only serves to make each experience even more special.
I was transported to another world!
The energy, skill and professionalism of the team really shone.
A wonderful and unique experience that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

A wonderful opera company finding fantastic ways to bring opera to a wider audience!

I'm going to really enjoy dipping into my VIP Pass
I highly recommend Rogue Opera and Bronwen!
Each aria is introduced with a short explanation, so it is easy to understand for my boys and me - she has brought the magic of opera into our home!
We loved performing for our virtual audience in our Celebration of Love & Friendship Gala!
Until our next virtual or in-person event, please enjoy this excerpt from the concert - the beautiful 'Soave sia il vento' Trio from Mozart's Così fan tutte
