Welcome to King's College London's student Opera Society!
King's Opera funds and stages several operas annually, including a Fresher’s Opera and other major productions. Even if you are not a singer yourself, King's Opera Society is a great way to just explore your love for opera.
There are also opportunities within King's Opera to gain experience in opera production, direction and artistic design.
After a highly successful year, in which we performed Kurt Weill's THE THREEPENNY OPERA in December, and Mozart's DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE was unfortunately postponed, King's Opera is currently holding our AGM and getting ready for a busy season next year! Watch this space for more updates coming soon.

King's Opera also holds frequent recitals which allow keen singers the opportunity to perform arias and opera scenes in a concert setting. Along with these extra chances to perform come the opportunities to gain experience in other aspects of opera; directors, producers, and set and costume designers will also have the chance to learn through experience. Not only this, but our productions always require roles such as stage manager, flyman, lighting designer, front of house staff and much more! Even if you're not a singer, but an orchestral musician become a member and get the opportunity to play in the pit for our productions! Along with the operas we are producing this year, there will be lots of masterclasses, workshops, talks and group trips to attend. A membership to King's Opera will allow exclusive performing opportunities, access to showcases and FREE entry to many other society events.
