Opera for One and All
Welcome to the website of New Cornwall Opera. Our energies are devoted to bringing you the best in opera.
New Cornwall Opera is now an established and respected pro-am company. With several appearances at the Minack and the Hall for Cornwall behind us, together with numerous successful tours of the region we have our own chorus and newly established orchestra for larger events. The company boasts several excellent Cornish principals. It also supplements the ranks with outside professionals when required.
Since 2007, New Cornwall Opera has played biennially at the Minack Theatre on the cliffs at Porthcurno and on occasion at the large Hall for Cornwall theatre in Truro with productions of Carmen, La Traviata, Madame Butterfly, Figaro and Cavalleria Rusticana.
At the Minack the company launched the New Cornwall Opera Orchestra.
In 2011, people came not once, but twice to the the company's Madame Butterfly at the Minack, and then booked to see the opera for a third time at the Hall for Cornwall
