It is with sadness and regret that, as of 11 October 2016, Opera Seria has ceased trading. All future planned performances have been cancelled.
We have thoroughly enjoyed producing great operas for the Manchester community, and are proud of all our accomplishments, reviews, and awards. We have seen some amazing singers, instrumentalists and directors pass through our ranks, and we wish everyone who worked with us the best in their careers. Thank you to our audiences and everyone who supported us since we started out in 2011.
Winners of the "Best Vocal Performance Award" for Don Giovanni at Buxton Fringe Festival 2016!!
"The acting was lots of fun with all the cast giving lively and often comic stage performances. The singing was superb. [...] Jonathan Ellis's playing was perfect for this production and complemented the singers. Hats off to Jonathan and the Stage director Rochelle Hart for creating such an enjoyable production and allowing Mozart's sublime music to shine through." (Alex Watts, Buxton Fringe Reviews, Don Giovanni 2016)
"A joyful evening’s entertainment." (Jildysauce, Cav & Pag 2014) "The explosive themes of jealously, murder and betrayal are skillfully transformed by Manchester’s opera company in this thrilling and exciting staged chamber production." (The Public Reviews, Cav & Pag 2014)
"Opera Seria continues to amaze with Donizetti's Maria Stuarda" (Bachtrack 2014)
